The Bridge on the River Kwai

The Bridge on the River Kwai ★★★★★

"Be happy in your work."

The Bridge on the River Kwai is a brilliant film. Alec Guiness gives an Oscar-winning performance as a British officer who is imprisoned with his men in a Japanese prisoner of war camp in the jungles of East Asia. He's great at motivating his men and keeping them going, but ends up collaborating with the enemy by building a bridge over the River Kwai, requiring an Allied team to go in and blow it up. Overall, it's one of the great WWII epics, also starring William Holden, who turns in one of his best performances as a quintessentially American hero.
