Entertainment Reviews:

Film Comment - 11/01/2008
"In chronicling the production, the film demonstrates and expands upon the artistic process of getting inside a specific historical mindset....The mix of hybrid approach and vivid detail bring Brecht into sharp focus."
New York Times - 12/24/2008
"In his inspired, inspiring essayistic documentary THEATER OF WAR, the filmmaker John Walter jumps from art to history and politics and back again, from the theater of the streets to the theater of the stage, without pause."
Box Office - 12/26/2008
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "If it's a movies of ideas you're after, look no further than THEATER OF WAR, a crash course in Marxist theory, the genesis and import of MOTHER COURAGE, and the life of playwright Bertolt Brecht."

Product Description:

With this documentary, Meryl Streep for the first time allowed cameras to record her preparation for a role. The occasion was her lead stage performance in Bertolt Brecht's MOTHER COURAGE AND HER CHILDREN. And while the film offers a plenitude of insights into the actress's craft, its focus narrows to the play itself--whose themes of warfare and violence have both parallels to life in 2006 and Brecht's tortured history in America.
