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.

12 Strong

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.

Victoria and Abdul

If this would prove to be Judi Dench’s last film, she would bow out as nobly as Burt Lancaster when he entered the cornfield in Field of Dreams. (1989)

The Vietnam War

Watch this documentary and then read “Hue 1968” by Mark Bowden. We as a nation should never forget.

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.
