“A triptych of vignettes set in places where
exhaustion, tedium, fear and duty collide to make moral reasoning difficult,
Foxhole marks the second feature so far by a filmmaker barely out of his teens.
Jack Fessenden (son of genre fixture Larry, a producer here) wears many hats,
most of them very well, teaming with a fine cast to deliver a war film
where happy endings may be imagined but bloody ones are never in doubt…
Fessenden directs and edits tense dialogue sequences with skill…
a movie that almost entirely rises to the height of its ambitions.
Let other films argue whether war is ever defensible or
pit one conflict’s righteousness against another’s;
Foxhole cares about the individuals tasked with fighting,
in the hours that challenge them most.”
