To the Shores of Iwo Jima (1945)

*** (out of 4)

According to the IMDb, four men were killed and ten others were wounded while making this documentary, which shows actual footage of the Iwo Jima battle. The battle scenes are quite remarkable and are shown in vivid color but there's also several violent moments where we see dead Americans and their mutated bodies. There's also another scene where we're shown the Americans setting fire to a fox hole where several Japanese soldiers are. The documentary goes on to show the bodies of these men on fire. Received an Oscar nomination.
