Remarkable film, remarkable woman
3 November 2018 | by suzypowlingSee all my reviews

Paul Conroy wrote the book on which this film is based and his is the principal voice telling the story of journalist Marie Colvin's last assignment, with him, in Homs, Syria. She was killed there by government shelling. He was badly injured but survived to continue to try to bring the world's attention to what is happening in Syria. He tells us this is not a civil war: it is slaughter. The images in this film, partly taken by him, partly by activists in the 'media centre' (a shell-pocked house), partly from archive footage and with less than 15% reconstruction, leave no doubt that slaughter is the mot juste. It is a heartbreaking, angry story, impeccably told. Don't miss it.
