Spectacular, shocking and masterfully stylized
On 6 April 1917, aerial reconnaissance has observed that the German army, which has pulled back from a sector of the Western Front in northern France, is not in retreat but has made a strategic withdrawal to the new Hindenburg Line, where they are waiting to overwhelm the British with artillery. In the British trenches, with field telephone lines cut, two young British Lance Corporals, William Schofield, a veteran of the Somme, and Tom Blake, are ordered by General Erinmore to carry a message to Colonel Mackenzie of the Second Battalion of the Devonshire Regiment, calling off a scheduled attack the next morning that would jeopardise the lives of 1,600 men, including Blake's brother Lieutenant Joseph.
Directed by Sam Mendes
The History of Requiem For A Dream
Darren Aronofsky’s 2000 movie is the work of artists who hadn’t yet been told what they could and couldn’t do.
Scripted in collaboration with the author, Aronofsky’s interpretation doesn’t complicate things any, but it does bring to the material an electrified sensory charge that hasn’t quite been replicated in any other addiction drama. In all its flash, slam-bang technique, it vividly evokes the sensation of what drugs actually do to your system, briefly for better and mostly for worse, from twitchy initial rush through to comedown and tortured aftermath.
The Ending of No Country For Old Men
In 2007, writer/director duo Joel and Ethan Coen released No Country for Old Men, an adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's celebrated novel of the same name. It quickly became heralded as one of the best pieces of work in their already stellar career, earning numerous accolades, including the 2008 Academy Award for Best Picture. In recent years, retrospective viewers have dubbed the film one of the best to come out of the 2000s. It's no wonder movie-watchers flock to it to this day, whether they're die-hard Coen fans or cinematic newbies.
