Stodgily structured by intercutting grisly stock footage with talking heads and muddy videos of Poets Against the War events, Voices in Wartime isn't nearly as cinematically inspiring as many of the poets it brings to light.
An overview of the historic relationship between war and poetry.
An important new documentary that looks at the ways in which poetry helps people come to terms with conflict.
A stirring testament to the search for meaning.
Voices in Wartime is a thoughtful, provocative exploration of the ways poets have dealt with the experience of battle throughout history.
It's interesting that, in a documentary about war poetry that supplements literary readings with the occasional use of exceedingly bloody archival war footage, the words more than hold their own against the pictures.
An absorbing and eye-opening documentary about war poetry.
One of the most original war movies ever made. Men die miserably every day for lack of what is found there.
Making poetry cinematic requires greater imagination than King evinces...If the medium isn't always as sturdy as the message, that's a fault that can be readily overlooked.
...fascinating and extremely literate documentary Voices in Wartime manages to present the poet's position on war without turning completely into an anti-Bush film.
Filled with some of the most powerful poetry and shattering images ever to come out of warfare.
The film's self-limiting pacifism precludes a closer look at the poetry of war, which is not synonymous with poetry against war.
