For­mer US Marine An­thony Swaf­ford’s 2003 book about his pre- Desert Storm ex­pe­ri­ences and fight­ing in Kuwait was given the full treat­ment by British di­rec­tor Sam Men­des. He was aided by all­stops- out per­for­mances from real- life broth­ers- in­law Jake Gyl­len­haal ( above) and Peter Sars­gaard, plus Jamie Foxx, Lu­cas Black and Brian Ger­aghty. Men­des’ film is un­flinch­ing and pow­er­ful.
