I rated Darkest Hour (2017) 7/10 #IMDb


Gary Oldman is very good indeed. As is Kristin Scott Thomas.

At times it seems very ‘british’ in its style. There are some jarring interludes into the Whitehall drama where we see the terrible toll being paid in mainland Europe.

The movie replays the usual Churchill myths and legends. It also shows the contempt many had for him.

His appetite for booze is almost comically played up with what looks like a bar order for breakfast.

I can’t attest to its accuracy but this is an entertaining, challenging, and proud movie. Well worth watching.

I go to the movies now and again. I take a few photos here and there and play with them a bit in Adobe Lightroom.
