Into The Storm

One of the best films of this year you've never heard of is Into The Storm, which is about the great British wartime leader Sir Winston Churchill.

I was astounded that such a well balanced film could get made in the UK these days. If the BBC had done it they'd have made Churchill into a cross-dresser who flogged his servants to death. As it is we have a truly excellent film which packs the entire Second World War into 1 hour and 35 minutes.

Here Churchill responds to people in his cabinet who say Britain should negotiate a peace with Hitler.

And here, after the war, Churchill responds to the threat of Socialism, in a radio broadcast which strangely enough is not widely known compared to his other speeches. He sure was right, although they didn't need a Gestapo, as both parties in the UK were socialist anyway.
