"Eye in the Sky", anti-terrorism theme, it's good to be cautious. I don't think it is "hypocritical." Whether out of the responsibility and selfishness of politicians, or out of moral considerations and human concern, procedural justice is indeed the foundation of modern political civilization. What really needs to be discussed is how this high-level human ideal represented by civilization, when confronted with the madness and barbarism of terrorism, how to prove his innocence, die willingly, or become a terrorist accomplice, is not the original intention. A movie is an irreversible gesture. How to judge from God’s perspective and whether the right choice exists, perhaps it is the sentence, “In war, the first to fall is always the truth.”

During the game, various grinding Ji and "pushing the pot" are really "British", and their portrayal of the US position is also suspected of being deliberately smeared; but I always feel that it is very healthy to be able to make such a film. This ambivalence on the issue of counter-terrorism and the differences of opinion in the cooperation between the United Kingdom and the United States reflect the dilemma faced by the West in combating terrorism.

The thinking of Hong theory can be how beliefs go to extremes, and where is the source of human inequality.

After reading it, I feel that I can't touch similar themes again in the short term, "The Boy in Striped Pajamas". War, from any point of view, is unbearable and embarrassing.

    The rhythm is tight, and it was originally a moral discussion with no absolute answer, but the slow motion at the end that highlights the death of the little girl and the fun makes the author's position completely moral and hypocritical.

    Chicken soup and paradigms like high school textbooks don't look like dark British films at all. Weaknesses that can be imagined: important operations are operated by skilled hands, military operations involve political and diplomatic activities, and there are detailed plans for military operations. Frontline commanders are solely responsible for the scene of military operations, and should not be closely monitored and dictated by high-level bureaucrats on the other side of the world.
