On Thursday February 16th PFS members got to see a preview screening of a new police drama starring Woody Harrelson, which actually is the second movie he’s made with director Oren Moverman and actor Ben Foster, the first being 2009’s The Messenger. In truth, Rampart isn’t a crime drama or police exposé, it’s a character study of a man who is both extremely articulate and seductive and at the same time, ridiculous and immoral.

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.
