At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (George MacKay) and Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman) are given a seemingly impossible mission.

‘1917’ brilliantly depicts both the chaos and the humanity of World War I

You won’t soon shake off this immersion into young soldiers’ bloody, muddy reality.

FOUR STARS (out of four)

Richard Roeper / Chicago Sun-Times

With brilliant, innovative, claustrophobically effective directing choices by Mendes, Oscar-worthy cinematography from the living legend Roger Deakins and strong, raw performances from the two young leads, “1917” is a unique viewing experience you won’t soon shake off. Although scenes were spliced together in post, the great bulk of “1917” comes across visually as one long unbroken shot. 

When we follow a couple of soldiers as they make their way through seemingly endless, serpentine-like trenches, walking past men who are wounded, exhausted, dazed, taking a quick break, engaged in heated conversation, etc., etc., it’s as if we’re dropping in on life after life for a second or two — and yet it feels as if the camera could stop at any time and focus on any one of those men, and they’d have a story worthy of their own movie to tell. Rarely have we cared so much about characters with so very little screen time. This is one of the best films about World War I ever made.

The classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott unfolds as the author's alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Director Greta Gerwig's take, this beloved story of the March sisters -- four young women each determined to live life on her own terms -- is...Read more

Greta Gerwig makes ‘Little Women’ feel fresh and relevant

The writer-director’s funny, moving adaptation respects the popular novel but gives these 1860s women attitudes that seem current.

FOUR STARS ( out of four )

Richard Roeper / Chicago Sun-Times

Now that I’ve seen and thoroughly enjoyed every frame of this fresh and unique and yet beautifully respectful take on one of the most filmed novels in motion picture history, I’m thrilled to report this is maybe the best “Little Women” yet, and it’s one of my absolute favorite movies of the year. Through Gerwig’s wonderfully creative prism, it’s as if we’re meeting the March sisters for the very first time, and we’re immediately swept away in a gorgeously filmed, wickedly funny, deeply moving and, yes, empowering story with themes still relevant some 150 years after the time period of these events. Gerwig and the cinematographer Yorick Le Saux use contrasting palettes to distinguish the “present day” sequences from the flashbacks. The former scenes have a sharp, vibrant, natural look, while the latter are bathed in more golden tones — liked filmed memories. 

One of the last movies of 2019 is destined to become one of the truly lasting movies of 2019.
