Think of Overlord as a precursor to Full Metal Jacket. Combining vintage newsreel footage with the story of a young soldier preparing for D-Day, Overlord was one of the first films to examine the psychological effects of basic training. The British movie was made in 1975 but wasn't released in the U.S. until this year, because of its unconventional structure. It's a surreal, thoughtful look at the psychological consequences of preparing to kill. It doesn't spoil the movie's impact to say there isn't a happy ending.
