For Screen and Country – The Bridge on the River Kwai (#11)
Written by Brendan Wahl on January 28, 2019
This week, Brendan and Jason talk about how to build a bridge while you’re being tortured by the enemy with #11 on the BFI Top 100 – The Bridge on the River Kwai. They talk about Alec Guinness and Sessue Hayakawa’s intense tet-a-tet, they debate if Guinness has crossed the line or not, they question who is indeed the star of this film and much, much more.
Plus: The guys roll the dice to find out what movie they’ll be covering next week. What did you think of The Bridge on the River Kwai? Is this a top David Lean film for you? Let us know!
