'Darkest Hour' shines a light on Churchill

• 3½ stars out of four •

Calvin Wilson / St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Darkest Hour” is a gripping account of a pivotal moment in the early days of World War II, grounded by an Oscar-worthy performance by Oldman. Working from a screenplay by Anthony McCarten (“The Theory of Everything”), director Joe Wright (“Atonement”) deftly balances political drama with scenes that explore Churchill’s character — and reveal a statesman who was far more complex than he is usually depicted.

It’s a measure of Oldman’s considerable acting skill that the impressive makeup job doesn’t distract from the passion and precision that he brings to the iconic British leader. It’s a performance that ranks with Daniel Day-Lewis’ memorable portrayal of an American president in “Lincoln.”

Far from being a dry biopic, “Darkest Hour” reminds us that some things — such as honor and freedom — are worth fighting for.

'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri' has the mark of genius

• Four stars out of four •

Calvin Wilson / St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Set in a fictional Missouri town but shot in North Carolina, the dark comedy “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” is bold, irreverent and hilarious — and one of the best films of the year. Working from his own script, playwright-turned-filmmaker Martin McDonagh (“In Bruges”) offers an assessment of American culture that’s no less scathing and scatological than his portraits of life in his native United Kingdom. And in McDormand, he has a performer who understands that characters don’t have to be likable; they just need to be interesting. Mildred certainly fits that description.

“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” is entertaining in a way that’s practically unheard of these days. It’s about the sheer exhilaration of expressing yourself, no matter what anybody thinks.
