Chris’ Film Club - U-571

Today would be the legendary producer Dino Di Laurentiis’ birthday (except he’s dead) but to honour his memory Chris has reccomended the film 'U-571'. He produced this somewhat controversial WW2 film about the capture of the enigma machine. It stars Matthew McConaughey, Bill Paxton and Harvey Keitel and was controversial because it presented the USA as having captured the enigma machine, whilst it was in fact the British. Regardless of this historical inaccuracy it is a tense, well-made film.
