Johnny Got His Gun
Based on the novel by Dalton Trumbo, this disturbing antiwar film chronicles the tragic fate of a World War I soldier (Timothy Bottoms) who survives a mortar shell only to have lost his arms, legs, ears, eyes, nose and mouth. Initially, he doesn't know whether he's dead, alive or dreaming. And though he can't hear, see or speak, he learns how to communicate his most fervent wish: to be taken on tour as evidence of the horrors of war.
