Enemy at the Gates

Initially, this film only interested me because the Russian made Mosin-Nagant rifle is featured as the sniper-protagonist’s weapon of choice, and I own an M-N.  The story impressed me by stressing the subtlety of war and digging into the propaganda machine. It asks the question, “why do men fight?” and answers with a remarkably intriguing plot and enough badassery to carry you through the Russian foxhole sex scene.  Great movie.
