Critic's Pick

'Pharaoh's Army'

September 01, 1996|Kevin Thomas

Robby Henson's 1996 film is a fine piece of regional filmmaking. Eschewing familiar pacifist pieties, Henson, in spare, eloquent fashion, brings war down to an agonizingly personal level where individuals, faced with people very much like themselves, are forced to make the toughest of moral choices. Patricia Clarkson, pictured with Will Lucas, and Chris Cooper head a top-notch cast that includes Kris Kristofferson, Robert Joy and Richard Tyson (KCET Wednesday at 9:30 p.m.).
