Critic Reviews for War Story
For much of the early going it's the burdened physicality that Keener brings to the role that tells us everything we need to know.
Jackson's spare, quietly powerful sophomore feature demonstrates an impressive control of mood and tone and the ability to tell a story largely without words.
There's minimalist filmmaking that's quietly intriguing, and then there's emotional detachment that's stultifying to the point of being nap-inducing. War Story falls into the latter category.
In Keener's hands, the collapse feels urgent but not unhinged, and Lee's trajectory from steely and determined to openly distraught lends an otherwise meandering film a strong core.
Catherine Keener rarely gets the chance to grab the spotlight all for herself. That makes this turgid drama especially disappointing.
