  1. Ethan's rating of the film Breaker Morant

    This is a powerful film that perfectly displays the hypocrisies of war and the people who start them and orchestrate them. It's almost as powerful as Paths of Glory but still not as great.

  2. ginobartolomi's rating of the film Breaker Morant

    The structure of this film is so unique and so essential to the depiction of what is just and unjust in times of war. We start off knowing very little about the men or the crimes in question, we learn little by little through their dreams and flashbacks, along with witness testimonies. Such an important piece of anti-war propaganda. And God, it's just so gorgeously shot!

  3. Joshua Paolino's rating of the film Breaker Morant

    A condemnation of colonialism and a repudiation of the notion that morality and warfare can walk hand in hand easily. The scene in which the chaplain speaks of the army's holy mission is profound and unsettling at the same time.

  4. Nick Potter's rating of the film Breaker Morant

    Without getting into it too much, Breaker Morant is great. It clearly takes a lot from Kubrick's Paths Of Glory, and even comes close to the it's predecessor, but there's just not beating a classic.

  5. Myles's rating of the film Breaker Morant

    Just watch Paths of Glory instead.

  6. OcioActivo's rating of the film Breaker Morant

    This feels like "A Few Good Men" for Australia, if not, a good double feature at least. Breaker Morant is more bleak and clearly has a point beyond the courtroom ideals. It is a period piece about discrimination of the highest order; heinous and old-fashioned. That alone makes the film important, I assume, especially for Australians and the English. The mechanics & filmmaking was solid but nothing too much to boast.

  7. Kyle Knapp's rating of the film Breaker Morant

    Breathtakingly shot, deftly written, superbly acted across the board. It's hard to pick a favorite among so many gorgeous scenes but the finale has to take the cake. Edward Woodward is excellent in the title role, but for me the performances of the film were Jack Thompson - always engaging even in his longest speeches - and Bryan Brown as Lt. Handcock, in what might be one of my favorite performances of all time.

  8. crystal meff's rating of the film Breaker Morant

    One can't but help question what kind of rules govern the race war in America .....when viewing the closing argument inside this film's courtroom.

  9. Jye Sherwell's rating of the film Breaker Morant

    I hear this is great! Probably should see it one day...

  10. Mark Desrosiers's rating of the film Breaker Morant

    In 1980, the film was an overdue skewering of war's relative morality (Kitchener looks an idiot, and the Empire are a knock-kneed bunch of conciliators here). Now: you decide if the Brits circa 1902 were creeping into terrorism, and then offing some scapegoats out of moral disgust (or as a negotiating tactic). Dying Morant (in one of cinema history's most striking executions), "Shoot straight, you bastards!"

  11. Rosa Friedman's rating of the film Breaker Morant

    A powerful anti-war message that doesn't shy away from moral complexity.

  12. Nosada's rating of the film Breaker Morant

    Aussies can do westerns too.
