As idiosyncratic as most of Marker’s magic musings on film memory and amnesia, this highly humanistic view of the last pre-nuclear face-off between the USA and Japan (the seminal, but semi-forgotten, bloody battle of Okinawa) fuses contemporary documentary footage and a computer-age digital focus to reverberant effect.
