FILMS THREAD

Just watched 'The Captain' . A hard hitting supposedly true story of a deserter who finds a uniform and then takes on the roll. Violent and tense and being shot in black and white only increases its starkness and shock value. A WW2 drama well worth checking out IMO . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...
