Rosamund Pike plays famed war correspondent journalist Marie Colvin in this film about her life, the danger she constantly put herself in so she could get the stories, and her friendship with her photographer (Jamie Dornan) who accompanied her on her final tragic voyage to war-torn Syria. Directed by Matthew Heineman, best known for his award-winning documentaries like City of Ghosts and Cartel Land, A Private War seems set up for awards, especially for Pike who lots of critics are calling already for Best Actress. But what do the humble critics at Oneofus.net think? Listen to Chris ask Ben and Marco what they thought in this review.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
