'CHURCHILL: The Untold Story of D-Day'

A PERFECTLY WRETCHED NEW MOVIE

'CHURCHILL: The Untold Story of D-Day'

Customers have been asking us about the new film, CHURCHILL: The Untold Story of D-Day.

Yes, we have seen it.

We found it not merely unwatchable but offensive. The depiction of Winston Churchill as an infantile old fool was bad enough but the filmmakers' ludicrous representation of him wimping out on D-Day was (and is) a brazen (and probably actionable) falsification of historical fact.

Rather than give this inept lump of cinema any further serious thought, we simply wanted to alert you to its awfulness by sharing an aptly brief and accurate review ("It is a hash.") in The New York Times.

You have been warned.
