I should post this while it’s still Memorial Day: One of the best movies about the dangers of glorifying war has recently been released in DVD: The Americanization of Emily. Rick Gee wrote a review of the movie that includes some great quotes, and the word osculation. It’s also sold as part of a Controversial Classics box set. Arthur Hiller directed it, and Paddy Chayefsky co-wrote it. (It’s based on the novel by William Bradford Huie) They also teamed up in The Hospital. I should see that, too.
