The Current War: The Director's Cut

The Current War

What’s that you say? You never heard of the first version of the film? That might be because it was never released in the United States. The story goes like this: In 2017, The Current War was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival even though the film had not been finished.

You go to see one movie and leave realizing a saw a different one entirely. This isn’t to say that this is a bad movie. It’s not. But I don’t think that it is as “important” as it thinks it is. Then again, maybe I don’t “get” sci-fi movies. Read More >>>
