Finally Sunday, Truffaut's final film

'All you need to make a movie was a girl and a gun'. This quote, attributed to Jean Luc Godard (although he himself claimed it originated with DW Griffiths) is an assertion that has entered film history and has taken on a life of its own. I would imagine that this rather glib statement was a way of Godard continuing his life's aim of deconstructing cinema and it's language. Of course it is not that easy, and nor should it be. To make a great film, even if it includes the girl and the gun, there should be someone to point the gun at and a reason to point the gun in the first place. It has to have a heart to it, something that is threatened, to achieve true greatness.

"War Machine" Review

"War Machine" is based on the 2010 book 'The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Story of America's War in Afghanistan' by the late Michael Hastings. It focused on U.S. Army General Stanley A.
