The Cinema Lounge
The Cinema Lounge, a film discussion group, takes place at 7:00 PM at Teaism in Penn Quarter, 400 8th St., NW in Washington, DC (closest Metro stop is Archives, also near Metro Center and Gallery Place). NOTE: We will meet in the downstairs area. You do not need to be a member of the Washington DC Film Society to attend.
The Cinema Lounge meets Monday, August 21, 2017 at 7:00pm. Our topic is "War Movies." The success of Dunkirk is nothing new. War movies have been a cinematic staple since the silent era. Each generation of filmmakers have shaped the genre differently. From All Quiet on the Western Front to They Were Expendable to Paths of Glory to Lawrence of Arabia to Patton to Apocalypse Now to Platoon to Saving Private Ryan, each one says as much about the current attitudes about war as it does about the war depicted. How have war films changed? Why are some wars depicted much more than others?
