Synopsis:
Hailed as one of the best comedies ever made and nominated for 5 Academy Awards including Best Picture, the story focuses on army surgeons who develop a lunatic life-style in order to handle every day horrors encountered in Mobile Army Surgical Hospital during the Korean war. Though highly skilled and deeply dedicated, this irreverent mob of madcaps is equally adept at making a shambles of army bureaucracy.

Classic AntiWar Comedy - M.A.S.H. review by GI

Spoiler Alert
23/10/2023

Zany, anarchic and downright hilarious this black comedy is one of the greatest anti-war films ever made. It may surprise someone watching today how innovative it was back in 1970 with it's random structure, overlapping, improvised script and boundary pushing with sex and bad language. Although set during the Korean War it's clearly intended as an allegory for the Vietnam War and it launched the careers of Donald Sutherland, Elliott Gould and Tom Skerritt and spawned a long running TV series. Sutherland is a drafted army Captain and surgeon assigned to a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital near to the frontline. Daily treating severely wounded men he and his friends, Trapper (Gould) and Duke (Skerritt) deal with the stress of their lives by rejecting strict army discipline and getting up to all sorts of antics. The film concludes with a football game to finally sum up the war if you haven't by then got the message. Intermixed in the scenes of their pranks are some quite bloody and realistic scenes of surgery to underpin the serious message the film is portraying. This is a real classic and set a benchmark for subversive and adult cinema throughout the 70s. A must see film at all costs.
