  1. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Taking Sides

  2. Matthew Martens's rating of the film Taking Sides

    A bit stiff despite all of Keitel's explosive scenery chewing, and strictly conventional in the way it dramatizes the contest between bullying American military justice and the rarefied, apolitical -- and therefore easily co-opted by fascism -- worship of culture represented by Furtwangler. But not without power, or complexity, both of which owe their presence in the film to a remarkable Skarsgard performance.
