“THE OUTPOST” Cringing and Heroic

July 3rd, 2020 No comments

 

Review by John Delia

“In 2006, the US Army established a series of outposts in Northern Afghanistan to promote counterinsurgency. The intent was to connect with the locals and to stop the flow of weapons and Taliban fighters from Pakistan. One of these was PRT Kamdesh. It was built in a remote valley completely surrounded by The Hindu Kush Mountains. One analyst said it may as well be called “Camp Custer”. His reasoning was simple and official.” – Filmmaker

Just making a statement that a film is based on a true story is one thing, but when it’s verified, you see a movie a bit differently. The screenplay’s shocking battle and the helplessness of the US Army fighters depicted in the movie The Outpost, is absolutely cringing. But, that word isn’t even a strong enough word for it. This film shows the ability and tactfulness of our military under fire, but more so, the heroism. Read more…

“7500” Terror in the Sky

Review by John Delia

A very intense drama, the movie 7500 jumps off running with nonstop terrorism aboard an airliner. The film is well made as it grabs you from the start so you know what is taking place, sets up the dire situation, then puts you in the cockpit with a terrorist and the crew. It’s a tragic happening reminiscent of other real incidents that have taken place in the world. One of the better made films about a hijacking, it will have you on the edge of your seat. Pop a lot of popcorn as you will need it not to chew on your fingernails. Read more…

A heartfelt film, The Etruscan Smile follows a man who wants to make amends and finds the love he never knew he had.

Review by John Delia

A cagey mystery that has some odd twists, Intrigo: Dear Agnes is the second in a trilogy by director Daniel Alfredson. The film has some very good acting and directing that takes you into the interesting story involving lust, money and a strained friendship. The screenplay is not predicated on having seen the first in the series and plays out independently of any information from the first. Read more…
