  • Son of Saul

    DIRECTOR: László Nemes
    CAST: Géza Röhrig Levente Molnár Urs Rechn

    Sickening and deeply impressive portrait of a man (Saul) who, as a prisoner of destruction camp Auschwitz, is forced to help with the burnings of the bodies. When it turns out he has to burn the body of his sworn godson, Saul is determined to save the body and to give him a decent Jewish burial. 'Son of Saul' is a war drama unlike anything you have seen so far. Almost like a fly on the wall, the viewer follows Saul; every single movement in an inferno-like decor. Read more

  • Krigen

    DIRECTOR: Tobias Lindholm

    Leave it to the Danish to make exceptionally naturalistic and gripping drama. Krigen ('A War') is an utterly poignant war movie about a commander making a horrible decision (with the best intentions) during a mission in Afghanistan. Krigen painfully shows how an army career deeply affects family life too. A film that will haunt for a few days after you have watched it. Read more

  • ’71

    DIRECTOR: Yann Demange
    CAST: Jack O'Connell Sam Reid Sean Harris

    Upcoming British star Jack O’Connell seems to be in dozen of films released at the same time. Last year he starred in another war film, Angelinga Jolie’s horrifying WW2 epic Unbroken. ’71 is from an entirely different order though; a raw and authentic looking war thriller about a British soldier (O’Connell) abandoned by his unit during a patrol in war zone Belfast. During the height of the Troubles, he’s left to his own devices in unfriendly neighbourhood (to say the least) and has to make it alive through the night while various people are hunting him.

  • The Siege of Jadotville

    DIRECTOR: Richie Smyth

'The Siege of Jadotville' tells the mostly forgotten story of an Irish military regiment under siege during the Congo crisis in 1961. For 6 days in a row, 150 Irish soldiers on a UN mission trying to hold back a 3000 man army of mercenaries. A solid war movie, once again based on the classic David vs. Goliath theme. Read more

  • Fury

    DIRECTOR: David Ayer
    CAST: Brad Pitt Shia LaBeouf Logan Lerman

    If you want to know what it is like to be packed in with 5 other tough swearing soldiers in a claustrophobic Second World War tank, then this film might be something for you. Fury is even a little silly at times (like when Brad Pitt loses his shit with a Nazi POW), but it is also a great and captivating account of tank warfare. It could not get more manly with each character outperforming the other in terms of bravado and toughness. Apparently the actors even had fistfights on set to determine the alpha-male and let loose some testosteron. Read more

  • American Sniper

    DIRECTOR: Clint Eastwood
    CAST: Bradley Cooper Sienna Miller Kyle Gallner

    When 'American Sniper' came out in 2014, it divided both audiences and critics. To some, Clint Eastwood's biopic about America's most deadly marksman (255 kills during the Iraqi War) Chris Kyle was the purest example of shameless patriotism and war glorification. Others thought Eastwood only intention was to show the sheer pointlessness of it all. Whatever you might think of this films's true meaning, 'American Sniper' is a riveting portrait of modern warfare. Read more

Sad as it may be, there are and always will be gripping war stories to tell. Troops are perhaps no longer fully deployed in Iraq or Afghanistan, and the First and Second World Wars are far behind us, but that does not mean nothing is going on, for example in places like the Middle-East that we should know about. We can learn much from the news and fine war journalism, but we see so many of those images that they become devoid of meaning. Filmmakers in the field of the warfare genre should tell the tales of people living in warzones like Syria. Make them intensely personal so that we, who live in peace, may in some way grasp what it means to live there. Sure, it's Hollywood so these films must also entertain us with bombs, shootings, and romantic heroism, but filmmakers should not forget the severity of their topic. Fortunately, a number of great new war flicks found a perfect balance between the need for entertainment and the necessity to inform. In very different ways, these movies all tell important and poignant stories that need to be heard.
