    REVIEW | Out of Fashion: Anne Fontaine's "Coco Before Chanel"

    Following in the footsteps of the unfortunate Jane Austen biopic "Becoming Jane," Anne Fontaine's glossy period piece "Coco Before Chanel" focuses exclusively on the youthful romances of a fascinating, independent woman in the years before her professional success.

    War movies produced by commercial film industries have a tendency to show any given conflict not as it is or was, but as the side footing the bill for the film would like for it have been. The essential moral irony of war — that acts that would be considered revoltingly inhumane if committed in the...
