Saving Private Ryan (1998)

Winner of five Academy Awards, this film is best known for the unflinching intensity of its opening, a brutal depiction of the Allied Forces' D-Day invasion of Normandy, France during World War II. Spielberg's frank examination of war is neither effusively patriotic nor condemning, and its sobering look at the real price of victory makes it one of the most highly regarded war films of our time.
