CE: It's not your imagination — the multiplexes have been flooded with a wave of biopics recently. Now, hot on the heels of films like Big Eyes and The Imitation Game comes the latest from director Clint Eastwood: a movie about Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. history. Like last year's Lone Survivor, American Sniper is a gripping account of bravery and heroism on the battlefield. But it also paints a haunting portrait of a man battling the psychological effects of war. And it has its star, Bradley Cooper, delivering the most transfixing performance of his career.
