The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp

Dir. Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger (1943). World War II inspired all manner of morale-boosting epics—none more curious than this Powell-Pressburger collaboration, as stylized in its florid palette, lavish mise-en-scène, and obtrusive musical cues as their subsequent Red Shoes and so unambiguous in satirizing the military mind-set that Churchill tried to have it banned.
