Melbourne 2018 Review: TRANSIT Disorients and Compels as Unique Wartime Noir
Director Christian Petzold’s (Phoenix) unique adaptation of the same name brilliantly twists the time and place of World War II events. The decision to depict a War narrative in this way disorients the viewer as there is no exposition to what is initially happening. In Transit a fascist occupation (implied Nazis) of France is transported to modern day, although things feel regressive and out of place. There are, for example, no facets of technology humanity has come to rely on, no safety net, and nowhere to hide. A man, Georg (Franz Rogowski) is hired to transport a writer, his travel documents, and controversial novel from Paris to Marseilles.

REVIEW: Mile 22 is a tedious and trivial hike into the realm of mindless, militaristic mayhem
They say that war is hell. Nevertheless, hell takes on a different kind of connotation when watching the boisterous and banal wartime actioner Mile 22. Director Peter Berg ("Deepwater Horizon", "Patriots Day") reunites with his Lone Survivor leading man Mark Wahlberg as they collaborate on yet another hyperkinetic special operations actioner. Clearly, the tandem of Berg and Wahlberg get their caustic kicks from delivering trigger-happy, explosive action-thrillers that percolate and penetrate. However, the mindless Mile 22 is an overwrought, noisy, and numbing mess that aimlessly echoes exaggerated volumes of destruction just for the sake of conjuring up a crass and colorful spectacle. Sure, some will attest to ensuring that their lively actioners are ignited by frothy firepower, rapid-paced fight sequences and cliched yet robust doses...
