Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk 2016

In 2007, 19-year-old soldier Billy Lynn and his platoon enter the battle in Iraq. The battle is filmed by military journalists, the cadres disperse on all the news. Billy and his military comrades become national heroes and return to America for two weeks for a promo tour, culminating in a show at the break of the football game on Thanksgiving Day. And after that, they must again go to war.

Reviews
The famous director Ang Lee, having exchanged the seventh decade and having wiped the deservedly received Oscar figurines, of whom he has three, in 2017 decided to tell about the events of the Iraq conflict, having screened the novel of Ben Fountain "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk". For those who do not like films of military orientation, I hasten to please - the picture does not focus its attention on the very conflict in Iraq. Ang Lee, rather, concentrates on his usual philosophical aspect, making from the history of the specialist Lynn a parable worthy of being heard.

Ben Fountaine's book begins with the words: "Men from Bravo are not cold" ... Indeed, Ang Lee will not show us "heroic gunships" with strong-willed chins, overgrown with bulky beards. The director, following the main idea of ​​the original source, will present to the viewer the ordinary guys, with their experiences and desires. It will make us think about the fact that the form lies, first of all, people. Their only difference - they saw the war not on TV, they felt it on themselves, with its characteristic fear and pain.

The film ridicules the capitalist society of the United States, ready to buy any thing, just to be beautifully sold. Here are the heroes who have all on their lips, returned from the front to their homeland and what of them did? True - the product. They are being traded, so that the moment when these boys will cease to be of any interest to anyone is gone. A similar problem, if you recall similar pictures, was partially raised in Clint Eastwood's film Flags of Our Fathers. But Eng, unlike Clint, showed all the pompous and tinsel-covered American-patriotism from head to toe, showing the true patriots through this brightness, whose duty they are instructed to go to Iraq again after the match. Go, despite the opportunity to escape.

The picture in the tape is juicy, the actors are in their seats, especially want to mention the debutant, starring Joe Alvin. Honestly, I can not believe that this is Joe's first role in the cinema, so strong was his game in this picture. From old acquaintances, it was nice to see the exaggerated Chris Tucker, who was the producer of the Bravo and Steve Martin department in the image of Norm Oglesby, owner of the Dallas Cowboys team.

The result. Ang Lee once again took off a strong, "warming" movie, which touches specially strings of his soul specially prepared for his tapes. There is no pathos, no sneers and lies. We all remember that cinema is the most powerful weapon in the world, it is called not just to entertain, but to leave a kind of "aftertaste", a thought that you will spend more than one night. And "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk" gives this idea, immersing the viewer in the residual trance, while the screen is slowly "running" the final credits.
