War Book (2015)
Critic Reviews for War Book
With an ingenious concept, this fairly simple film becomes one of the most gripping thrillers of the year even though it rarely leaves a wood-panelled conference room.
Harper's framing is always dynamic, and often pointed: each glimpse of life passing blithely by this room's only window provides a sobering reminder of the extent to which we're at the mercy of those who would govern us.
Riveting, terrifying, and unafraid to confront its own quiet horror. One of the most important movies ever about nuclear weapons and modern governance.
Audience Reviews for War Book
A superb, brilliantly written and acted thoughtful piece, almost entirely set in one room. Up there with Fail Safe in terms of the ideas and morality explored.
