River of Unrest ★★½ Ourselves Alone 1936

Remarkable visual expressiveness and emotional power mark this depiction of terrorism and open warfare during the Irish Rebellion. Based on a play, hence slow; but good acting pulls it up half a bone. 69m/B VHS . John Lodge, John Loder, Antoinette Cellier, Clifford Evans; D: Brian Desmond Hurst; W: Philip MacDonald; C: Walter J. (Jimmy W.) Harvey.
