THE CAP­TAIN

★★★★☆ OUT 21 SEPTEM­BER

Total Film - - Big Screen - Paul Bradshaw

Di­rec­tor Robert Sch­wen­tke (Red, Di­ver­gent) re­turns to his roots to make a black-and-white Ger­man drama su­pe­rior to any of his Hol­ly­wood out­put. Max Hubacher stars as a scrappy young pri­vate who deserts his unit in the last weeks of WW2, steals a Nazi uniform and abruptly turns into a mon­ster. An orig­i­nal take on the war movie, this is both har­row­ing true story and smart, Kafkaesque farce in one.
