As Letters from Iwo Jima goes on general release, Francine Stock talks to Clint Eastwood about this and Flags Of Our Father, his dual film project - war films that ultimately argue against war, contrasting takes on a crucial battle of the Second World War, one from the American perspective, one from the Japanese.
