Read Time:19 Second

Director Christian Schwochow created Munich: The Edge of War to be a puzzle of deceit, and he succeeded—in spades. The film is based on actual events preceding World War II, and it is politically enticing and spellbinding. In 1917 (2019), a British war film set during World War I, actor George Mackay played the role […]
