‘Saving Private Ryan’
It’s one of Hollywood’s most startling and realistic depictions of World War II. It won Steven Spielberg his second directing Oscar out of 11 total nominations. And yet, somehow, “Saving Private Ryan” still lost best picture to “Shakespeare in Love.” See whatever it was that Oscar voters missed as “Saving Private Ryan” returns to theaters in advance of the 75th anniversary of D-Day. See it Sunday and Wednesday at Colonnade, Orleans, Red Rock, Sam’s Town, Santa Fe, South Point and Village Square.
