Dunkirk

If you majored in history in college as I did, this film teaches you more about an event in World War II than you will ever learn in a textbook.

Chappaquiddick

This is an easy movie to avoid even for you historians.

Paul, Apostle of Christ

Both dull and plodding, it gives Christianity a bad name.

The good news about 12 Strong is that it rises above the expected absurdity comprising most January film releases.

The Post

Our republic owes a debt of thanks to Daniel Ellsberg. This film will cause you to remember why.

Darkest Hour

A penetrating film, Gary Oldman’s performance is a movie classic by any definition.

Viceroy’s House

Sometimes all but ignored films provide a history lesson that deserves to be seen and remembered.

Detroit

Your heart will break as you react with disgust. This was the America that we lived through in the 1960s.

13 Minutes

Had Hitler only spoken 13 minutes longer…thus the film’s title.
