A bombardier in World War II tries desperately to escape the insanity of the war. However, sometimes insanity is the only sane way cope with a crazy situation. Catch-22 is a parody of a "military mentality" and of a bureaucratic society in general. Written by
Jeffrey Struyk <Catch22@ix.netcom.com>
A very intelligently made film, despite not having read the book. I didn't expect it to be so humorous with the talents of Jon Voight, Charles Grodin, Alan Arkin and Art Garfunkel dominating the narrative with enthusiastic wit. There are of course the representations of capitalism, fascism, communism as one would expect from an anti-war film, but its how they are represented that makes the film tick.
Watch it for yourselves and delight in its sardonic humour and realise what Catch 22 actually means, a term so commonly used without real understanding.
I will certainly purchase Joseph Heller's novel in the near future and hope its better than the film, as this is one film that could be better than its adapted source.
