Best War Movies of 1993 : Cabaret

Cabaret

3.3
8.0/10 IMDB

A filmed stage performance of the 1993 London revival. Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Road to Perdition, Skyfall) directed this new production for the Donmar Warehouse in London's West End. It starred Jane Horrocks as Sally, Adam Godley as Cliff, Alan Cumming as the Emcee and Sara Kestelman as Fräulein Schneider. Cumming received an Olivier Award nomination for his performance and Kestelman won the Olivier for Best Supporting Performance in a Musical. Mendes's conception was very different from either the original production or the conventional first revival. The most significant change was the character of the Emcee. The role, as played by Joel Grey in both prior incarnations, was an asexual, edgy character dressed in a tuxedo with rouged cheeks. Alan Cumming's portrayal was highly sexualized, as he wore suspenders (i.e. braces) around his crotch and red paint on his nipples.

Starring: Alan Cumming, Jane Horrocks, Adam Godley, Sara Kestelman, Loveday Smith, George Raistrick, Michael Gardiner, Charlotte Medcalf, Charlotte Storey ..

Stalag Luft

6.7/10 IMDB

Few wartime prisoners have attempted escape quite as many times as bumbling RAF Officer James Forrester. Though Officer Forrester has twenty-three escape attempts to his name, each successive attempt he makes to break free somehow seems to go worse than the last. But this time there's a difference, because Officer Forrester isn't just plotting his own escape, but the escape of all 327 of his fellow prisoners as well - and all at once. In fact even the Germans want to escape!

Starring: Stephen Fry, Nicholas Lyndhurst, Geoffrey Palmer, Sam Kelly, Hugh Bonneville, David Bamber, Marston Bloom, Todd Boyce, Roger Hyams, Benedick Blythe ..
