Comedy, War Films
Set in the Korean War, released during the Vietnam War, and relevant to the Iraq War, this jet-black comedy follows the doctors of the 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital as they use humour - and homemade gin - to cope with the grim irony of saving lives that will then simply be fed back into the war machine. The results are angry, hilarious and completely off-the-wall, capturing the anarchic spirit of its times - Robert Altman, the movie's director, once said it "wasn't released - it escaped".
Based on Joseph Heller's great World War Two novel, this wild and often hilarious satire captures the sense of a soldier brave enough to be cowardly.
