    Shutter Island is a bear hug to cinema while it’s also an occasionally tart valentine to genre.

    Severe Clear provides a view of the early days of the war and reminds you of all the promotion and idealism that conflict came with.

    Evokes a New York sentimentalist tradition that mixes the edge of golden era Cassavettes with the nostalgia of Woody Allen-all of which owes eternal debt to the western European New Waves and Bergman.

    This doc is far from perfect, formally it accomplishes nothing new and has opportunities to go places that could have been massive, but these missed opportunities don’t undermine its other accomplishments. It’s imperfect and still does quite a lot.
