Movie Review – Churchill (2017)

Churchill, 2017.

Directed by Jonathan Teplitzky.

Starring Brian Cox, Miranda Richardson, John Slattery, James Purefoy, Julian Wadham, Danny Webb, Richard Durden and Ella Purnell.

Synopsis:

Exhausted by years of war, the Allied forces plan an invasion of Normandy, but British Prime Minister Winston Churchill is not convinced!

In the days leading up to the invasion of Normandy, the headstrong Churchill (Brian Cox) is unconvinced that a full frontal attack will gain any leverage for the Allied forces, and the operation is a suicide mission.

The UK have recently put this much-loved British Prime Minister on their £5 note. Revered by many as a war hero the idea of bringing a flawed, hard-nosed version of Winston Churchill to the big screen is bold. Could Churchill be the antithesis to the lore? Alas, it plays out like a patriotic piece of propaganda, perpetuating the myth, and conveying Churchill as an incorrect, yet deeply passionate,

Churchill – Review

Brian Cox as “Winston Churchill” in Churchill, directed by Jonathan Teplitzky. Photo courtesy of Cohen Media Group (c)

Brian Cox portrays Winston Churchill in a dramatization of the events just prior to the D-Day invasion of France by Allied forces during World War II in Churchill. Directed Jonathan Teplitzky (The Railway Man, BBC’s Indian Summers television series) from a script by historian Alex Von Tunzelmann, Churchill aims to get beneath the usual familiar image of Churchill as a gruff, cigar-chewing British bulldog to create a fuller human portrait of the man who grappled with deep depression and fears of failure while leading his country through its darkest hours.

It is an admirable aim but unfortunately the film falls far short of its goal. Led by an overheated performance by Cox, Churchill stages a last-minute attempt to stop the 1944 Normandy Invasion, gripped with fear that it would fail. Less than a week before D-Day,

Alien: the stories the movie franchise has yet to explore

Ryan Lambie May 9, 2017

Ahead of Alien: Covenant, we take a look at the unexplored plot threads the existing Alien movies have left behind...

Nb: The following contains a mild spoiler for Prometheus as well as earlier films in the Alien franchise.

See related  Looking back at Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me

When Prometheus emerged in 2012, it took the franchise in a very different direction - well away from the dark, metallic corridors of the main Alien movies and into broader sci-fi territory. Sure, Ridley Scott's Alien prequel contained plenty of slithering things and a splash of blood here and there, but the director evidently had bigger things on his mind than facehuggers and xenomorphs: the origins of life on Earth, godlike beings from the other side of the galaxy, and exactly how they came to crash-land on to encounter - or perhaps even create - the title Alien from Scott's 1979 classic.

David Morrissey to star in The City & The City TV series

Rob Leane Apr 24, 2017

China Miéville’s fantasy crime novel The City & The City is coming to BBC Two, with David Morrissey starring...

China Miéville’s The City & The City is a novel that blends crime procedural with high concept fantasy. It focuses on a detective, a murder investigation, two overlapping locales, and an ancient legend.

BBC Two announced a four-part TV adaptation not that long ago, with Red Riding and The Young Pope's Tony Grisoni writing the scripts, and House Of Cards/The Missing alum Thom Shankland on directorial duties. Today, the cast has been announced.

David Morrissey (who's still best known as The Governor from The Walking Dead, although he's since starred in The Missing and Extant) will play the central investigator, Inspector Tyador Borlú.

"I am delighted to be working with the brilliant Tony Grisoni again on this exciting project," Mr Morrisey said. He previously worked with

David Morrissey Takes Up Residence in ‘The City and the City’ for BBC

David Morrissey Takes Up Residence in ‘The City and the City’ for BBC
David Morrissey will head the cast of Tony Grisoni’s adaptation of “The City and the City” for BBC Two.

The international cast also features German actress Maria Schrader, recently seen in “Deutschland 83,” and U.S. actor Christian Camargo (“Dexter,” “Penny Dreadful”). Also starring are rising British actress Mandeep Dhillon (“Some Girls”) and veteran British actors Ron Cook and Danny Webb.

Described by the BBC as a “genre-busting thriller” based on the “mind-bending” 2009 novel by China Mieville, “The City and the City” follows the investigation of Inspector Tyador Borlu (Morrissey), a detective in the Extreme Crime Squad of the fictional rundown European city of Beszel, into the death of a foreign student. He soon discovers that the dead girl came from Beszel’s sister city, Ul Qoma, and was involved in the political and cultural strife that exists between the two. To do his job, Borlu must work alongside the Ul Qoman police.
