Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk

Ang Lee
 
A final battle scene, in which Billy recalls the grisly details of his shootout, has a jarring quality for the way it captures every gory detail with near-documentary results. The halftime show, which could stand alone as a short film without the surrounding exposition, provides a vivid contrast between the histrionics of a Destiny’s Child performance and Billy’s uneasiness at its center. For a fleeing moment, we’re right there with him.

[T]here is something disarmingly tender about the way Mr. Lee dramatizes young Billy’s predicament. You may be surprised at how sweet this movie is and also, in retrospect, startled by how bleak its vision turns out to be.
 
A. O. Scott / The New York Times
 
 
Billy and his fellow soldiers are presented as “authentic” heroes. They’re proof of a national strength of character that many Americans were searching for in 2004 (…). The story is a work of Bush-era satire, a subversion of the narrative that administration tried to sell the country about the Iraq War and the country’s appreciation for its soldiers.
