How I Won the War Review


Grim
This war farce (about World War II) is just not funny. Even John Lennon in the ultimately ironic role as a soldier in the worst regiment in all of Britain doesn't make much of an impact, and as the movie gets progressively weirder it gets just plain boring, not to mention silly. And rather dumb.

An Awfully Big Adventure Review


OK
Georgina Cates, what has become of you?

In the year 1995 and at the age of 20, the fair-skinned redhead had what was arguably her biggest and most noteworthy role in An Awfully Big Adventure, then took smaller and smaller roles in smaller and smaller films until vanishing completely from the movies in 1999.

Iris Review


Excellent
In the refined and sobering drama Iris, we witness a loving but unconventional relationship between a strangely elegant couple -- English critic John Bayley and his Alzheimer's-stricken, novelist wife Iris Murdoch. Writer-director Richard Eyre, who wrote the script with Charles Wood based on Bayley's memoirs Iris: A Memoir and Elegy for Iris, delivers an amazingly touching portrait of resilient and everlasting passion between two eccentric creative forces who have contributed to the literary world immensely. Iris is an enchanting and finely-acted personal drama that manages to absorb the pleasures and pain of an undying spirit of togetherness. Expressionistic and resoundingly involving, Eyre's thought-provoking film is perceptively engaging.

Eyre does a terrific job in showing us the deterioration of a brilliant-minded woman in Iris Murdoch. It is always frustrating to witness anybody's decline in health, but it must be particularly awful for a talented author with an impeccable series of written work to her name. The film shows us the two phases of Iris's life -- as a free-spirited young woman in 1950's Oxford, England and as an aged, sickly soul trying to survive her last days in the 1990s while her husband tends to her needs. Titanic heroine Kate Winslet plays the youngish and energetic Iris while Oscar-winning actress Judi Dench portrays her ailing years.
