Creative propaganda
27 October 2000 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

Frank Capra has mentioned that he considers his army propaganda films as among his most important work. No doubt he was speaking more about their purpose than their content. Nonetheless, "Know Your Enemy: Japan" has some very compelling scenes. This work has many, effective fast contrasting cuts. In one of the best, Japanese war atrocities, such as graphic shots of dead babies, is alternated with euphoric Japanese soldiers at a rally. This is an extremely effective propaganda piece, perhaps the best of the many Capra did for the US Army.
