Critic Reviews for Theater of War
Engrossing and timely, this crackles with ideas about art, politics, religion, and the terrible costs of war.
For theater lovers in general, this documentary -- a look at a high-powered production of a modern classic and a chance to watch Meryl Streep build a character -- is intriguing and educational. For partisans of Bertolt Brecht, it's mandatory.
All of this makes an interesting, if not gripping, film about the play, the playwright and the lead-up work to a stage production. It also leaves me wanting a great deal more.
Theater of War, Walter's invigorating film, asserts the value of Brecht -- and the power of art -- for our troubled times.
As a onetime dramaturg and Brechtian, I enjoyed the chin-wags and the glimpses of Streep in rehearsal -- especially her quivering admission that she can't bear the thought of anyone seeing her process.
