Opening battle sequence.  Religious symbolism.  Chronically terrible screenwriting.  All this and more as Henri invites me onto Fortress on a Hill to discuss Spielberg’s 1998 World War 2 ‘epic’ Saving Private Ryan.  We talk some real history, some personal experiences, whether the opening sequence of the movie is gritty and realistic or a bunch of sanitised schlock and awe, how the whole film is a rip off of The Longest Day and Walk in the Sun, why the storyline makes no sense from start to finish, and round off talking about God and the Bayeux Tapestry.  Seriously, you don’t want to miss this conversation.
