Redemption At Hacksaw Ridge: The Gripping True Story That Inspired The Movie is a page-turner that will keep you riveted to your seat while you discover how Desmond Doss became the first conscientious objector to receive the Medal of Honor. This dramatic true story of integrity, redemption, and heroism inspires trust, courage, commitment, dedication, and the faith to live by the courage of your own convictions. (Our Reel Book Lovers club will be reading and watching this book to movie adaptation together sometime in 2017.)
The men of the 77th Infantry Division couldn’t understand why Private Desmond T. Doss would voluntarily enter into the horrors of World War II without a single weapon to defend himself. “You’re nothing but a coward!” they said. But the soft–spoken medic insisted that his mission was to heal, not kill.
Tara and Sam of Brickwall Pictures went to an early screening of ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ the Mel Gibson movie based on the book, starring Andrew Garfield, Hugo Weaving, Sam Worthington, Theresa Palmer, and others.

Review on Youtube
I wanted do a top list that I’m pretty sure has never been done before. This is the top 3 best strangulations wait that doesn’t sound right. Top 3 coolest- no. Top 3 most memorable and best executed strangulation scenes in films. Quick addendum before we get the list started. We have an honorable mention for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Nurse Ratched gets strangled. You really want to see her die. The movie gets close to killing her off near the end. When Jack Nicholson starts choking the life out of her it is so gratifying. Your rage as audience uses R.P. McMurphy as a catalyst as and explodes onto the screen. Unfortunately he gets pulled off before the job is finished but damn was it satisfying while it lasted. It doesn’t make the list because she didn’t die. Another honorable mention to the creative and intense bike lock strangulation from Breaking Bad, but this is Movie strangulations only, no TV.
3. God Bless America- Long Shot
Bobcat Goldthwait’s American Masterpiece features a number of impressive long shots, one of which happens to be a strangulation of a pedophile in a motel room.
2. No Country For Old Men- Setting the Bar
The Coen brothers wanted to front load their violent film, with the most violent scene in the entire film. Javier Bardem’s facial expression really sells the scene, and makes seem all the more brutal.
1. Inglorious Basterds- The Dark Side of Hans Landa
Christoph Waltz and Quentin Tarantino bring the most intense, violent, and memorable strangulation scene (That I can think of in 10 minutes) in film history. Christoph Waltz sells this scene. He turns red and looks like he’s about to pop a blood vessel in his eye. What makes this scene even more effective is that fact that for the rest of the movie leading up to this moment, Landa was not a violent person. At least not with physical actions. He has a very threatening and commanding presence, but he’s always calm and calculative until this moment, and that is what makes this the greatest movie strangulation.
