‘Come And See’ Is A War Movie Like No Other
With the restoration and re-release of Elem Klimov‘s underappreciated war epic “Come and See,” we steel ourselves to revisit the film’s famously immersive, brutal, even dangerous portrayal of the WWII Eastern Front. (A child actor’s hair literally turned white.) Listen as we dive back into the Russian film’s production history, myth, canonization, and assess the lines between majesty and gratuitousness.

Be Reel is a movie reviewing & reappraising podcast hosted by Chance Solem-Pfeifer and Noah Ballard.
Each time out, we select three movies based around a genre and call up guests ranging from submarine captains to Oscar winners. Then, we rate the movies, weighing both technical quality and entertainment.
Noah and Chance are old friends who mostly respect each other’s opinions. Even though Chance is a fool and a traitor. Find their show presented at ThePlaylist.Net and follow them on Twitter for the latest on Noah’s literary agenting and Chance’s work in the Portland arts scene.
