Joe's War Gives Great Insight
21 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

Joe's War is a great insight into soldiers suffering from PTSD and allows viewers, who aren't familiar with the disorder, see it first hand. The director did a great job of bringing the audience into their horrific real "deteriorating" world. This sickness is real and needs to be addressed, so I applaud all that were involved with the making of this film.

There were some really nice shots to go along with it, and the music was fantastic. Definitely some heart-touching emotional scenes. The story gave just enough insight without over complicating the issue at hand, so that we could see this disorder and try to understand it best we can. These soldiers, who defend our country need help and sometimes they don't know where to turn and we need to take notice to the warning signs.

We need movies like this now more then ever to raise awareness. I would recommend this film to anyone. Really makes you think.

On top of it all, Armand Assante's performance was brilliant and he gave a perfect and unique dimension to the film's character!
