'Charlie Wilson's War'- Momentous But Momentless

Ultimately, when he's resolved to take action, he lowers his head and rams into adversity - crashing down hallways and flying in jet airplanes, unflappable and resolute.

Charlie Wilson's War is no different. Helmed by one of the greatest directors of all time, Academy and Tony award winner Mike Nichols ("The Graduate," "Catch 22," "The Birdcage," "Primary Colors" and Broadways' "Spamalot," "Odd Couple," and "Barefoot in the Park"), the...

Redacted
As far back as the 30s, celebrities and even cartoon characters endorsed the purchase of war bonds to support World War I. Then again, there were those who opposed war. For example, producers came up with films such as "Johnny Got his Gun" in 1971, which was based on the 1938 anti-war novel by Dalton Trumbo.

Today the genre has become a standard by directors, writers, and producers who have a missive for the mass audience. Although many films, such as Robert Altman's 1970 film "M*A*S*H," were thinly disguised as the Korean War to show opposition to Vietnam, just as many were made f...
