This coming Saturday, we screen the movie that launched David Lean on his path toward character-driven, idiosyncratic epic movies that were expertly crafted and edited: The Bridge on the River Kwai.
We follow captured World War II Prisoners of War in a Japanese internment camp forced to work to build railroads and other infrastructure for the Japanese war effort in Burma/Cambodia. However, the movie dynamically splits onto two tracks (if you will) as one contingent of soldiers escapes (lead by an always dynamic William Holden), and the others who stay are lead by a determined but increasingly delusional commanding officer played by Alec Guiness.
