          The day after they get the word they'll go home in two weeks, a group of soldiers from Spokane are ambushed in an Iraqi city. Back stateside we follow four of them - a surgeon who saw too much, a teacher who's a single mom and who lost a hand in the ambush, an infantry man whose ...best friend died that day, and a soldier who keeps reliving the moment he killed a civilian woman. Each of the four has come home changed, each feels dislocation. Group therapy, V.A. services, halting gestures from family and colleagues, and regular flashbacks keep the war front and center in their minds. They're angry, touchy, and explosive: can a warrior find peace back home?

          In the crucible of war, men can kill without remorse. But the pressures of violence can also foster a bond between enemies even between captive and jailer until the lines of their conflict are obscured. So it is for Lieutenant-Colonel John Lawrence (Tom Conti), a British officer ...fluent in Japanese language and culture, tolerated by his captors and resented by his fellow prisoners. The precarious truce between the two sides becomes unsettled when headstrong and indomitable Major Celliers (David Bowie) enters the camp and the Japanese immediately set out to break him. Lawrence is drawn into the battle of wills as the conditions for the prisoners worsen and both he and Celliers become the target for punishment and torture culminating in the sadistic Sgt. Hara (Takeshi) offering Lawrence a 'Christmas present'.

          There's plenty of top-notch, explosive action in this 1943 'Bogie' classic about a ragtag battalion stranded in the great African desert during World War II. After the fall of the Libyan city of Tobruk, Sergeant Joe Gunn (Humphrey Bogart) and his crew - 'Waco' Hoyt (Bruce Bennet)..., Fred Clarkson (Lloyd Bridges) and Jimmy Doyle (Dan Duryea) - retreat in their tank across the Sahara. Along the way they pick up six Allied stragglers and Tambul (Rex Ingram), a Sudanese corporal, and his Italian prisoner. Tambul directs the group to a desert fortress, where they hope to find desperately needed water. A detachment of German soldiers arrives and attempts to barter food for water, but Gunn and his followers refuse. When the Germans attack, Gunn leads his desert-weary men in a desperate battle, hoping that British reinforcements can arrive in time.
