Mel Gibson’s latest movie, “Hacksaw Ridge”, premiered on the 4th. It’s apparently about Desmond Thomas Doss: A pacifist serving as a medic in WWII, on the front lines. And it’s based on a true story.
Doss has a wikipedia article:
“He was a Corporal (Private First Class at the time of his Medal of Honor heroics) in the U.S. Army assigned to the Medical Detachment, 307th Infantry, 77th Infantry Division.”
This latest film fits neatly into a Gibson trilogy: Passion, Apocalypto, Hacksaw. All three share deeply Christian themes.
