FSR Review: 'In The Land Of Blood And Honey' Delivers A New Director To Watch In Angelina Jolie

Robert Levin from FSR Writes:
On the surface, In the Land of Blood and Honey seems like a vanity project of sorts for its maker, Angelina Jolie. After all, the actress/humanitarian/super-mom is one of the few figures in Hollywood who could strive to make a Bosnian War-set Romeo and Juliet with subtitles and actually get it done.

Yet the finished project suggests that we might have found a new director to watch. Jolie brings a sincere, serious vision to this ambitious enterprise. Crafted with a veteran’s skill, the film ably traverses a range of emotions, from the intimate warmth of bedside scenes to the cold, calculated brutality of war at its most horrific.

I've always liked good foreign films. I don't mind the subtitles at all as long as the story is good enough to keep me interested. I've been waiting for this one to come out in my area but I don't think it has yet.

Ever since I saw the trailer for this movie I've been intrigued by it. I'm not a big fan of the fringe film look(except Korean films, I seem to really love those), but this one seemed so good. I'll see it eventually but probably from a Redbox not in theaters.

I was interested since I first heard Jolie talk about it but then when I saw the trailer too I knew it was going to be one of those movies that would be worth seeing. If it shows in my area, I will see it at the theater because I want to see it on the big screen but sometimes they show it in limited release.
