Fifth about The Seventh

Beasts of No Nation

Beasts of No NationBeasts of No Nation: war is horror, but rarely has it been more horrific than in Cary Joji Fukunaga’s film. It’s thrilling, it’s heartbreaking, but it’s also brutal, bleak and unpleasant because of the harsh reality it so ably displays. It’s a fictional story, but one that is likely too close to reality for comfort. Well put together in the bellow-the-line departments, but it’s the acting that is memorable. Idris Elba has a strong, intense role, and Abraham Attah is simply spectacular as the main character; he displays a great range of emotions along his journey.
