I saw the Philadelphia Film Society screening of In the Land of Blood and Honey more than a week ago, yet I kept putting off writing my commentary. Why? Because I have a hard and fast rule when it comes to movie/film genres – I don’t see war movies! I’ve never seen Bridge Over River Kwai, Platoon, Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down, The Hurt Locker etc… The senselessness of men (and women) in battle is just something I don’t care to watch. However, I made an exception with this film because I, like most who follow Hollywood, am fascinated with Angelina Jolie – as a mother, an actress, an activist, a “wife” to Brad, and now as a writer/director.
