A Week In Film #586: Could be worse

BTK: A Killer Among Us title screen
BTK: A Killer Among Us
Fairly sober documentary which mostly avoids luridness (mostly), and features amongst its interviewees Kerri Rawson, daughter of BTK himself, Dennis Rader.

The Great Escape title screen
The Great Escape
Classic ensemble PoW action, underpinned with pathos. Top hole from John Sturges (adapting from Paul Brickhill’s account) and his cast, and fascinating to see how different it is in style and pace (and yet very similar in other ways) to The Wooden Horse, which was based on Eric Williams’ book about an earlier escape from Stalag Luft III.
