A Private War

Though Rosamund Pike has received a Golden Globes nomination, is a film worth watching where the story devours the central character?

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.

12 Strong

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

Darkest Hour

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

Megan Leavey

This is not a great movie, but all dog lovers are bound to get a little teary-eyed on more than one occasion.

Wonder Woman

This is a colossally entertaining film with a social significance that makes it special.

Churchill

Another tedious 2017 film.

Their Finest

This film will remind you to read “Five Came Back”, the powerful book about Hollywood directors in World War II.

Frantz

As Frantz’ father says in this film, “Aren’t parents responsible for encouraging their soldier sons to go to their grave for unknown reasons.”
