The War Zone (1999) ~
« on: March 09, 2014, 04:26:48 AM »

Director: Tim Roth

Tom (Freddie Cunliffe), an alienated 15 year old boy, finds the that opportunity for close observation of his father, after their move from London to rural Devon and the birth of a new baby, reveals a world run through with darkness and pain. Tom is unable to reconcile the life he's known what he sees with his own eyes, and blames his 18 year old sister, Jessie (Lara Belmont). Both Tom and Jessie struggle to find some path to truth and sanity as the human forces around them work in polarity with their isolation to either assist them, or destroy them.

I ignored that Tim Roth had dabbled in direction, and the result of that is really worthy of praise, it is a very well shot film with a powerful story which gets immerse ourselves in the seemingly dull, drab and gray ambient of a family newly molted to the English countryside, where however shameful secrets are hidden.

Tim Roth tells us in The Dark Zone that there is something filthy inside this family, that behind laughs, brotherhood and typically homely warmth, lies something rotten and dirty. What secret is hiding? Is it worth it to reveal even if it means destroying the entire family?

This was a fucking amazingly  disturbing film. This is sitting in my gut...

The War Zone is an incredibly sad but beautifully directed movie by Tim Roth – his only directorial venture. When you’re done with it, it will stay with you not just for its content but the way it has been presented, and will make you wish Tim Roth directed more movies.
