The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957)

September 4th, 2006 · No Comments · Artists


Director David Lean’s academy award winning The Bridge on the River Kwai is a film I didn’t want to see but, now that I saw it, is one I’m constantly thinking about. A drama that ages well, this film’s dense psychological ending is ahead of its time and is especially pertinent today. It’s a layered study of the power––and danger––of blind commitment, fueled by honor and trust.

I rank it 81 on my top 100 films list (which I’m not ready to publish because there are too many films I haven’t seen yet) behind (80) A Place Called Lovely by video artist Sadie Benning and ahead of (82) Casablanca.
