The phrase "Catch 22" now signifies a no win situation. It was taken from Joseph Heller's novel about a bunch of American fliers during the Second World War who are stationed in Italy. They go on bombing missions across Europe. A satire that condemns war as seen through the eyes of the men based in that military camp. It is a rather difficult movie to review with all of its powerful undertones of anti war and attacks on imperialism so I shall continue when I am in a better frame of mind. I figure I would have to watch it several times for me to truly comprehend the message behind the book/movie so it is a good thing that I bought the film and can do so any time I want.
