Captain John Yossarian flies as bombardier aboard B-25 over Mediterranean Sea. Disillusioned with the war he gets more and more desperate to get out of the air force, but Catch-22 constantly gets in his way to freedom.

Captain John Yossarian flies as bombardier aboard B-25 bomber in missions over Mediterranean Sea, but the constant danger and pressure left heavy marks on his mind. He had to witness death of his friends and even though he already should be released from service he is still stuck in airbase on Italian territory. His superior, Colonel Cathcart, keeps increasing the number of missions crewmembers have to fulfil in order to be released, which makes Yossarian more and more desperate to get out of here. With very little options available he even tries to pretend to be mad, so he could be sent back home, but Catch-22 keeps blocking that option. What is Catch-22? If you say you are crazy and want to be released from service (and thus survive) it means that you are not crazy, so you shouldn’t be released. With pure madness around him Yossarian is falling deeper and deeper into madness himself.

One of the icons of anti-war movies Catch-22 is a comedy-drama that shows how individual can get lost in the war machine unless he will find a way to cope with the madness around him. Just like M*A*S*H from the same year Catch-22 is an exaggerated look at the army during the war, the story itself is a loosely linked set of scenes and motifs. Unfortunately besides the strong anti-war message Catch-22 has not much to offer - the grotesque characters, scenes filled with more allegories than actual events - all of it is more an experience rather than actual movie. It is one of the movies that are worth to know, but hard to enjoy.
