A Private War Movie Review

After viewing ‘A Private War’ I was surprised to find out who produced it. Not that it was a woman producing such a serious in-depth look at war but that she could have given herself this significantly challenging role but didn’t. The character was uncommonly rich and would have given her more than an off chance at grabbing another Oscar. It was produced by Academy Award®-winning actress/producer, Charlize Theron (Monster, Tully). Charlize has nineteen producing credits to her name and with five projects at this moment in either pre or post-production, it doesn’t look as if she’s planning on stopping anytime soon.
‘A Private War’ is about a journalist and the very idea of journalism being under attack in times of war. Often times what journalists shed light on isn’t appreciated by the people being exposed. These particular regimes are covered extensively through who the film focuses on. It highlights the work of Marie Colvin, played by Academy Award®-nominee Rosamund Pike of ‘Gone Girl.’ Marie Colvin was one of the most powerful reporters we’ve ever seen. She was always brave in the face of danger. Colvin knew that it wasn’t only her responsibility to but took it as an honor to tell the stories of those who could not speak and be a voice for the dead. She wanted to tell the truth when no one else cared enough to and no one else would.

Whether you think it’s a necessary evil or you believe that war is simply sanctioned murder (perpetrated by old men and their egos who send young men and women off to die), there’s no missing the fact that this film is impressive. ‘A Private War’ takes direct aim at both of those points significantly well. And the script not only makes you feel great respect for Colvin, but you also grow frustrated with her stubbornness as you get to know her. First and foremost in her life is the job she has to do. Though she sees and feels an obligation to those she loves, the loyalty to her job of reporting the facts will always take precedent. Who is she if she isn’t injecting those principles into her work and out to the world? She must describe, for her readers, the pains of others. She feels a duty to tell those who might make a difference of the terrible ills she sees. Once she absorbs the suffering and grief, she narrates it for the rest of us. As she puts it in the film, ‘I see it, so you don’t have to.’

On assignment in Iraq, she meets renowned war photographer Paul Conroy (Dornan). She enlists him to help her and, working together from there on out, he never leaves her side. They see a lot of death and it eventually takes its toll. Her time on the frontlines has revealed its scars both inside and out. She’s almost killed while in Sri Lanka but instead suffers an injury. Due to the injury she’s forced to wearing an eyepatch for the rest of her life over her now blinded left eye. She’s bothered by it but you can also see she views it as a symbol of her work and of her own struggles. And perhaps by some, knowing she’s endured the wounds of battle, she’ll be taken more seriously.
The film also affirms the deep trauma that you can’t see. Colvin’s a chain-smoking alcoholic who’s finally pressured into taking time off when she can no longer tell what’s false from what’s real. She suffers from PTSD. Admitting that alcohol quiets the voices in her head, realizes the time away is indeed needed. Paul understands what she’s going through more than anyone and knows she’s addicted to the adrenalin rush. Colvin is in a relationship with a man named Tony Shaw (Tucci) but Paul seems to be the one she reveals more to. He knows she hates war but has to see it… has to reveal it. He’s there with her when she goes to the Syrian city of Homs. Homs is getting more dangerous for them by the minute. He pleads with her but can’t convince her to leave. Armed with her story of profound anguish, she connects with Anderson Cooper of CNN and gives her final interview.

‘A Private War’ is directed by critically acclaimed documentary filmmaker Matthew Heineman who lovingly tells her story with the utmost respect and dignity. It’s entertaining and heartfelt and honest in how it acknowledges her defects but classy in making it known to all of humanity that she loved her work. I highly recommend it for the cinematography, directing, performances and for the Annie Lennox tune at the end. Don’t miss it.

A Private War Advance Movie Screening

Movie Screening Summary

In a world where journalism is under attack, Marie Colvin (Rosamund Pike) is one of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time. Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontlines of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless, while constantly testing the limits between bravery and bravado. After being hit by a grenade in Sri Lanka, she wears a distinctive eye patch and is still as comfortable sipping martinis with London’s elite as she is confronting dictators. Colvin sacrifices loving relationships, and over time, her personal life starts to unravel as the trauma she’s witnessed takes its toll. Yet, her mission to show the true cost of war leads her — along with renowned war photographer Paul Conroy (Jamie Dornan) — to embark on the most dangerous assignment of their lives in the besieged Syrian city of Homs.

Journey’s End Movie Review

Journey’s End is an incredibly well-done war film. It’s set in the spring of 1918 during the fourth year of WWI. We’re transported to the battle of Saint-Quentin in northern France, where a very young soldier, Raleigh (Butterfield), is in the trenches about to fight for the first time. Each company of soldiers is required to spend six days a month on the front-line and it’s his turn.
The set is brilliant and looks authentic, giving you the exact feeling of what a WWI trench warfare must have felt like.
As the camera moves through the men, you get a strong feeling of claustrophobia. To manage this feeling, director Saul Dibb keeps the camera focused closely on the faces of the soldiers, allowing you to sense all expressions clearly. There’s no way you’ll mistake a feeling of fear for one of contentment or bravery.

You can’t help but think of what it would have been like back then not only being on the front-line but being stuck in the ground for so such long periods of time, waiting for the enemy, waiting to die. Young Raleigh is stationed with a friend from back home, Stanhope (Claflin), who happens also to be captain. Stanhope isn’t exactly handling things well and knowing the sitting ducks that they are, gets through the day by drinking as much whiskey as he can get his hands on.
These characters will keep you engaged in the film and the actors playing them must have been well versed enough in the war to visually and audibly bring the attention to detail Dibb needed to pull empathy and pity for their circumstances from his audience.

We’re not in battle much, but when we do get there, you’ve gotten to know them and care for them so much so that you’re hoping they return. You dread the possible moment a bullet finds Raleigh. The journey Dibb takes you on is from different perspectives than most and it’s those differences that you’ll celebrate.

It was originally a play written by former British officer R.C. Sherriff. His story was simply about life in the trenches during WWI and you’d think it couldn’t make a thought-provoking yarn but with the characters struggles, their trying to get in the last smoke before they die and the battle itself, Journey’s End, though a smaller film than others like it, is one of the better war pictures I’ve seen. There are a few slow parts but don’t worry… no matter what’s going on in the film you’ll be in a constant state of wondering what’s going to happen next. This helps make Journey’s End memorable, which it most certainly is.

Thank You for Your Service – Movie Review

Thank You for Your Service centers around three servicemen Schumann (Teller), Solo (Koale) and Waller (Cole) when they’re discharged from the Army after serving together in Iraq.  It starts by showing an incident that haunted each of them when it happened and also now that they’re out.  In 2007, they’re caught on a roof being shot at by a sniper when a soldier named Emory (Haze) is struck in the head.  Schumann tries his best to save him.  He advances down some stairs, carrying Emory on his shoulders.  Unfortunately, before Schumann gets to the bottom of the steps and out the door, he drops him.  With the taste of Emory’s blood in his mouth, it’s a moment he’s having a hard time forgetting.

We don’t see a lot of combat in the movie because the purpose of the film is not to show you a battle on the field but the battle each soldier has upon returning home.  We see the issues they have due to the stress they were under either in combat themselves or what they saw returning from the frontlines.  Not wanting to admit they need it but realizing they do, the struggles they have trying to get care for themselves is colossal.  The significance of the film is to tell the citizens of this nation that soldiers aren’t given help immediately just because they need it.  Tangled in a bureaucracy of red tape, administrators and office after office travel, they have to fight just as hard to be heard and to be helped with their afflictions in America as they did in the deserts overseas.  They also find their own homes not to be the same place as when they left.

Schumann is a married father of two.  He was in charge of his unit of a dozen men and his expertise was looking for bombs everywhere they traveled, something he may never stop doing for the rest of his life.  Waller, about to marry his longtime girlfriend, can’t wait to get home.  Thinking about his impending nuptials is what gets him through from one day to the next.  On their trip back to the states, he talks to his buddies about the wedding.  Then there’s Solo who doesn’t actually want to leave the Army but due to memory loss and other problems after this last deployment, the Army questions his fitness to return.

All three feel the anxiety and pressure of having been at war and should get help now that they’re stateside, right?  This film shows the sad reality that people willing to die for their country are treated with respect while serving but forgotten about when they’re no longer under fire.

It’s hard enough for them to admit they need help but when they turn to find it and are told to take a number, for one it’s too late and it’s heartbreaking to see the others fight to get any help for the PTSD they obviously have.

Solo reveals he’d rather have missing limbs than to have to endure what is going on in his mind any longer; he doesn’t feel like a war hero because he doesn’t look like one.  Each man hides the truth deep inside especially Solo who thinks himself a lesser man for being harmed mentally, not physically.  He’s filled with anger and frustration when an event they lived through continues to attack him.  Eventually, he attacks back, to whoever is around.  Koale does an outstanding job portraying a man breaking down inside, trying diligently to hold onto who he once was; hardly recognizing his past, unable to see his future.

Schumann’s wife Saskia (Bennett) works rigorously to get her solid and stoic husband to open up and tell her what’s wrong but having to be in control on the battlefield is so deeply ingrained in his psyche, he refuses to show any weakness now, even for her.  Finally, after and a wake-up call and some soul-searching, he calls a number he was given to a location in California that can help men in their position and Schumann takes the first step to getting them the help they need.  I won’t reveal what happens to them during the course of the film but see this to understand how important each of us is to a Veteran, and why.  Also, stay to see some images of the people on which the story was based.
