reminds me of "Catch-22"
17 June 2019 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

It was a surprise to see that William Wyler (Roman Holiday, Ben-Hur, Funny Girl) accompanied the US air force on a mission and got to film them in action. Must've been quite the exhilarating experience.

One thing that caught my attention was the part about their superiors raising the number of missions that they had to carry out. It reminded me of "Catch-22" (wherein the superiors keep ordering the pilots to fly more and more missions).

Anyway, "The Cold Blue" is a good documentary. A story like you can't imagine.
