Those who have resources live in luxury with completely automated houses. Tora! (1970) to depict what "really happened on December 7, 1941" in the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. [80] [81] The film, panned by Roger Ebert [82] and the New York Times, [83] was a major success in Japan. [80] Its realistic-looking attack footage was reused in later films such as Midway (1976), The Final Countdown (1980), and Australia (2008).

[58] Its success revived interest in World War II films. [87] Others tried to portray the reality of the war, as in Joseph Vilsmaier 's Stalingrad (1993), which the New York Times said "goes about as far as a movie can go in depicting modern warfare as a stomach-turning form of mass slaughter." [88] Many war films have been produced with the cooperation of a nation's military forces.
