After viewing the film please briefly respond to the following prompt (paragraph or two)
Some forms of art use violence for a specific purpose. The inclusion of the horrific deaths of Kid Sampson, McWatt, Micheala, and Snowden highlight a key theme in Heller's satire. How does Saving Private Ryan use violence for a specific purpose? What is that purpose? Do you see similar themes between the two pieces of art? What are they?
