Beautiful, dramatic docudrama
19 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Robert Clem's COMPANY K combines the best of documentary nonfiction and dramatic fiction. Using both vivid color and subtle black-and-white techniques, this world-class filmmaker puts his considerable talents to the utmost task of filming William March's poignant novel and drawing a full-scale biography of the writer himself.

Previously I had enjoyed Clem's powerful BIG JIM FOLSOM: The Two Faces of Populism, but COMPANY K goes a step further in exploring the human condition as it was lived by a fictional soldier and by the novelist March, who served in WWI and returned to his Alabama home to write COMPANY K and his psychological drama, THE BAD SEED.

If you like film noir, you will love COMPANY K.
