Yup, "Saving Private Ryan" was the first in a new era of realism in film. Much 
of the camera work is hand held, the time compression was a very new concept, 
the colors are muted, sound is louder or softer than you'd expect based on the 
situation.
I had to write a paper on it in college (film school remember) after I'd make a 
trailer for "Shaving Ryan's Privates"

I would agree.

From a purely historical standpoint, and as far as getting a really good 
overview of the scale of the operation, “The Longest Day” does a good job I 
think.

“Saving Private Ryan” is good, to, but the realism is sort of jarring.  That’s 
not a bad thing, just an observation.
