"Come and See"

All This and World War II! concludes at Trailers from Hell, with screenwriter Larry Karaszewski introducing harrowing 1980s international arthouse classic "Come and See," from director Elem Klimov.

Klimov’s powerful, near-surrealistic battle fantasia nearly made it into TFH’s “More Movies You Never Heard Of” category. The title is an invitation to view the destruction caused by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The movie, from the Soviet Union, is a fixture on many critics’ Ten Best of All Time lists. Its obscurity is hugely out of proportion to its accomplishment. Commissioned to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Soviet victory in WW II, it’s the glasnost version of Apocalypse Now. The director, having made his point, never made another film.

The film made it on to cinematographer Roger Deakins' greatest films of all time list.
