  2. FISCHER's rating of the film The War Game

    Un chef-d'oeuvre insoutenable ! www.cinefiches.com

  3. smndvdcl's rating of the film The War Game

    Watkins' faux-documentary premise creates powerful polemical statements. 'Punishment Park' and 'The War Game' should be considered as key signifiers of the craft in film history.

  4. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film The War Game

    Most powerful war film i have ever seen.

  7. Ozu_Teapot's rating of the film The War Game

  8. Superfrog's rating of the film The War Game

    Well done but without the impact of, say, Threads.

  9. Stefano Pesenti C.'s rating of the film The War Game

  10. Illusion Travels By Streetcar's rating of the film The War Game

    "Can you call this a documentary?" "No." http://illusionpodcast.blogspot.com/2014/05/episode-12.html

  11. Mister No's rating of the film The War Game

    Âge atomique apocalyptique.

  12. Sergiu Scripcă's rating of the film The War Game

    Chilling, even after five decades. Also heavy-handed? Sure. But how could someone not be when dealing with the absurdity of nuclear warfare?

  13. film_lies101's rating of the film The War Game

    Interesting, but decidedly dated as well.

  14. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The War Game

    Antecedentes, sucesos y consecuencias de un posible ataque nuclear en una ciudad inglesa. Similar a Culloden, Watkins promueve una dura crítica a la Corona y a las políticas nucleares de los entonces países protagonistas de la Guerra Fría.Una reflexión a la conciencia social y el acto negligente del gobierno respecto a sus normativas antes las catástrofes. Lo que no me gustó:ocasionalmente un dramatismo sobreexpuesto

  15. Gerard Corvin's rating of the film The War Game

    Probably my all-time favourite. Demonstrates more eloquently and efficiently than any other film the power of cinema to confront injustice, hypocrisy and human perseverance

  16. El Biffo's rating of the film The War Game

    Very well done. So well done, in fact, that BBC commissioned it, then decided that it was too frightening to show. Watkins is one of the greatest innovators in documentary cinema, (along with Chris Marker). A very real documentary using a fictional premise, as he did in "Privilege", and "Punishment Park".

  17. OutoftheBlue21's rating of the film The War Game

    Scariest film i've ever seen. It reached out and punched my soul.

  18. TFCHooligan69's rating of the film The War Game

    The most frightening aspect of this particular short film, is the fact that nuclear annihilation is still a very real possibility in the 21st century.

  19. Zachary George Najarian-Najafi's rating of the film The War Game

  20. Percy's rating of the film The War Game

    Best war film ever made.

  21. wolfmansRazor's rating of the film The War Game

    With its vast array of terrors visited upon the population of Kent (especially its children, suggesting Watkins may have been targeting his film to the nightmares of little children), the film mongers fear with the best of them. But it's hard not to see this as the product of a very different time. The pseudo-sobriety of the "documentary" format belies Watkins' near-hysterical approach to the subject matter.

  22. Langston Young's rating of the film The War Game

    "Oh, where are you coming from, soldier, gaunt soldier, With weapons beyond any reach of my mind, With weapons so deadly the world must grow older And die in its tracks, if it does not turn kind?"

  23. Paul Pastoor's rating of the film The War Game

    "This family couldn't afford to build themselves a refuge...this could be the way the last two minutes of peace in Britain would look"

  24. Zachary W's rating of the film The War Game

    Worst. Game. Ever. None of the other children want to play with Peter Watkins. He just sets things on fire... He's really quite brilliant, though.
