This approach has the capacity to make its subject appear a repellant and even pathetic figure, but for avoiding that fate we can largely thank Cox for a magisterial and empathetic performance that gets under the leader's skin.

Inserts as protagonist a man who resembles Prime Minister Winston Churchill in almost no ways whatsoever.

I'll leave it to real historians to separate fact from fiction, but for all its provocations -- and von Tunzelmann admits she has manipulated some events -- this is certainly a film that gets you thinking.

The story itself is desperately repetitive and ungrateful, and to overcome it we invented cinema. [Full review in Spanish]

Sadly, "underwhelming" is the only word to describe the movie...

It offers a lot for an actor willing the seize the bit and gnaw on it, as Cox is more than capable of.
September 5, 2017
We're entertained and kept interested in one of the biggest and most important events in modern history.

Ambitious and veined with noble wood, but boring and disappointing. [Full review in Spanish]

As it stands, director Jonathan Teplitzky has made a minor entry into the cinematic literature of the war. It's a bit like having only one chapter of what should have been a multi-volume endeavor.

Churchill is not just history but also a work of art.

"Churchill" is to its subject what the "The Green Berets" was to the Vietnam War. "Berets" attempted to make a World War Two heroic propaganda in the wrong war.

Given its very narrow focus, there are scenes that feel repetitive as we continually watch Churchill argue with others and look deep within himself.

It has powerful visual moments, a score that perfectly accompanies the feel of Winston and a casting that for many moviegoers will be nice to see, but that will leave unsatisfied those who are more demanding. [Full review in Spanish]

Churchill deserves a pat on the back for its production and an almighty applause for its performances. All in all, it is a fascinating watch.

After the third time in which same squabbles happen, the movie feels stuck in a loop - how many times must an old man be kicked in order to elicit sympathy?
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 30, 2017
A film that is reduced to a plot exposition to construct a mainly discursive narrative of null drive. [Full review in Spanish]

There are some beautifully written supporting characters enlivened by astute performances, particularly from James Purefoy as King George and Richard Durden as South African prime minister Jan Smuts.

A deeply etched portrait of a man forced by duty to rise above his own ego to serve his nation as its moral figurehead.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
June 23, 2017
It's skilfully written and directed, and anchored by a wonderfully layered performance by Brian Cox.

Cox's towering performance makes Churchill feel as though it's stepping into fresh territory.
