Ron Perlman would have us believe that war never changes, but the movies about it certainly have. The last 15 years have brought no shortage of films about the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan (for obvious reasons), but World War II continues to fascinate filmmakers most of all. That includes Christopher Nolan, whose recent hit “Dunkirk” manages to bring something new to a genre that constantly feels at risk of becoming old hat.
And while those two conflicts have dominated the genre of late, everything from the Civil War to the Battle of Red Cliffs has found powerful expression onscreen. Kathryn Bigelow’s “The Hurt Locker” tells us that “war is a drug,” and the films below suggest that movies about war are just as addictive — maybe even more so. »

To celebrate the release of Chosen - available on DVD & Digital Download 27th March – we are giving away a copy courtesy of Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment. An extraordinary story of courage and survival during World War Two, as the resistance take on the Nazis in a powerful cross between Valkyrie and Defiance. Chosen is war cinema at its most powerful!
Take an incredible cast, including a supporting role from Hollywood legend Harvey Keitel, a war story inspired by actual events that is as audacious as it is incredible, mix it in with stunning production values and thrilling set pieces, and you have Jasmin Dizdar’s Chosen.
A powerful and haunting testament to the human spirit, a portrait of humanity in the depths of war that is brilliantly evoked, thrillingly effective and frighteningly prescient.
