A bit clunky and corny, but sincerely intent on providing a realistic portrait of wartime causalities, both during and after battle.
February 6, 2019
Ang Lee's most topical and "lifelike" film yet.
August 29, 2018
Ang Lee succeeds in bringing to the screen a perspective that, if not exactly new, is certainly affecting and emotionally meaningful.

The biggest takeaway from Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Long though is that Joe Alwyn, a British actor capable of astonishingly nailing a heavy southern drawl accent, just became a star in his debut performance

The degree of realism is going to terrify actors, although it's interesting to see the likes of Steve Martin, Vin Diesel and a particularly impressive Garrett Hedlund all rising to the occasion.
August 20, 2017
A heavy-handed but accurate social satire on the Iraq War and America's nauseating attempt to package it as a necessary war back home.

Never mind the technical innovations, Stewart and the affecting newcomer Alwyn are the two main reasons why Billy Lynn deserves our votes this week.
March 15, 2017
A movie that explores, nearly as well as The Best Years of Our Lives, the gap that divides actual warriors from those who merely wave flags in their honor.

An interesting film that tries to show the plasticity that exists between powerful people but can be a bit confusing and feels a bit overacted when it tries to make that critic. [Full review in Spanish]

Like Billy, this portrait is flawed yet noble and sensitive.

The visuals take a while to get used but soon emerge as sharp and clean as the film's thoughtful political message.
February 9, 2017
A unique, hyper-real whatsit that should be seen the way it was shot.

The film is very good at capturing the camaraderie of the soldiers -- and the sometimes desperate way in which they rely on one another.
February 7, 2017
A flawed work held together by Alwyn's tender presence.
February 6, 2017
It's a genuinely experimental film, intermittently successful despite a punishing lack of depth in the characterisations.
February 1, 2017
A tragicomedy, between illness and parody, far from the overwhelming effect that Ang Lee is seeking. [Full review in Spanish]
February 1, 2017
A comical and terrifying satire of the American way of life, which indicates that stories about returning from war may be entering a new dimension thanks to new technologies. [Full review in Spanish]
