There is no past voice in politics more relevant today than Winston Churchill. As our own Republican Party is too weak to confront America’s most dangerous president, it is reminiscent of Churchill being one lone voice to challenged and committed to fight Hitler. Directed by Joe Wright and starring Gary Oldman, Darkest Hour is by far among the most anticipated films of the year. It would be anyway, with or without these dark times we’re living through, but it is especially so as the sane world drowns and very few have any power to save it. Churchill wipes away the cynicism and brings back heroism. Oldman appears to nail the performance in a way no one else ever has, the voice, the cigar – he’s got it.
