  • Jolie has an army of craftsmen in her corner, notably camera poet Roger Deakins (No Country for Old Men). But it's her vision that gives Unbroken a spirit that soars. In honoring Louis' endurance, she does herself proud. show more

  • One of these days, Angelina Jolie might very well direct a great movie. She has a rare talent and intense concerns and interests. But first she is going to have to suppress some self-defeating impulses that have now twice taken potentially effective films and rendered them ridiculous. show more

  • As directed by Angelina Jolie, it is occasionally powerful, with soaring visuals. It also is, however, stately and slow to the point of tedium. show more

    A Most moving movie which was directed with excellence! I was not happy that it did not receive any awards during the Golden Globes or nominations for the Academy awards. There are many more stories out there about so many heroes and experiences men and women have had in past Wars.
