They Shall Not Grow Old

City Cinema

Saturday, March 16, 2019, 09:10pm

This repeat is an exception to the normal repeat pattern

March 15–18 (times vary)

14A, mature theme, gory scenes
Dir: Peter Jackson, UK/New Zealand, 133 min. (Includes a ‘making of’ short after the feature)

They Shall Not Grow Old was produced to mark the centenary of the World War I armistice and to honour the British war effort, and it does both of those things admirably… Jackson brings the past to life in an almost stirring way… Marrying archival footage to audio testimonials from veterans, the film recounts the experiences of the enlisted… The big technical gambit—colourizing scratchy black-and-white footage to make it look more ‘real’ to the modern viewer—is introduced gradually, the better to bring us into the era rather than bring the era to us. It’s a radical artistic choice, and it works incredibly well, giving They Shall Not Grow Old a power and an immediacy rarely found in documentary cinema.”—Norman Wilner, Now Magazine
