misleading reputation - Slaughterhouse Five review by JG

Spoiler Alert
29/10/2020

An enjoyable watch, much easier than the book. My problem with both is that the story is described as being about the bombing of Dresden. It isn't. It is a science fiction story about a character who time travels back and forth in time and extra-terrestrially much of his experience being in WWII. The bombing of Dresden is an episode not the subject of the film. Ignoring the reputation helps to see the film as what it is, a science fiction story about time travel with some philosophical overtones.
