It takes a pretty serious set of balls to wade into the middle of a war, yet even this courage seems dwarfed by people doing so without the comfort of a weapon to protect themselves. Hacksaw Ridge tells the story of one such non-combatant, and today’s list celebrates the most notable medics and observers that military films have offered over the years. These are the characters that braved the bullets to be at the front, alongside active combatants to help either with their observations, or their life-saving actions.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is as safe as mainstream entertainment gets, but it succeeds in that modest goal and is a welcome respite from the world-destroying robots, disaster films, and apocalypses of late.
Animated film ‘Miss Hokusai’ is a contemplative, rather Zen experience.
Based on Fredrik Backman’s novel of the same name, A Man Called Ove is the story of a man who might just as easily have fallen between life’s cracks were it not for the compassion of strangers willing to take a chance on the guy.
