A Film, A Call to Action
19 April 2018 | by innovativeengineerSee all my reviews

Joe's war is an engaging story of the struggle of a veteran who suffers from post traumatic stress disorder. The film captures the tensions Joe experiences in his relationships with family, friends, Doctor and a fellow patient whose parallel arc depicts an upward path to recovery. The film effectively pulls the viewer in, and one can not help but identify with the supporting characters as they struggle to help Joe re-integrate into society, and fight the evolving alienation that surrounds him. The tension in Joe's war builds to a climax which brilliantly portrays the tragic and sometimes violent nature of post-traumatic stress and the senseless destruction it causes in the lives of the afflicted and those who are connected to them. Everyone has a "Joe" in their life at some point, and Joe's War deals with this important topic in a direct and poignant way. This film points out that our society has done little to truly help PTSD victims and serves as an urgent call to action on this devastating illness.
