Tim Burton: War Movies Is A Thriller That’s Not A War Movie
Posted On June 20, 2021
Tim Burson is a man of many talents, from his acting career to his writing and directing career.
His latest film, The War Movie, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, is the kind of film that’s hard to deny Burson has made.
The War is a movie about war, and Burson’s performance is as compelling as it is terrifying.
Burson plays the title role, played by Kevin Costner, who is just as much at home as he is in his military uniform.
As the film progresses, we see Burson become more and more isolated from his fellow soldiers, as his actions become more self-destructive.
We also see Costner’s character, Lt.
Col. James Brown, becoming increasingly isolated from the rest of his squad as he becomes consumed by a desire to protect his fellow troops.
Burton’s performance as Burson and Costner is as chilling as they are hilarious, and he is an undeniable star in a genre that has become one of the most powerful cinematic devices of our time.
Tim Burstein was born in New Jersey and raised in California.
He is the son of actor and comedian Bob Burson.
Tim is currently a writer and director.
The following interview was conducted by Ryan Pappas.
Ryan Papps is an editor at Buzzfeed, and writes about movies, TV shows, and music.
His work has also appeared in The Huffington Post, Vice, Entertainment Weekly, and Entertainment Tonight.
The film The War will screen at the Sundance Festival this weekend.
We spoke to Burson, Costner and Pappamas about the film and the world of war movies.
