Peter Jackson’s World War I Masterpiece

Peter Jackson set out to make a half-hour film about the Western Front in the First World War. What he ended up making is a 140-minute film that has revolutionized the documentary form. They Shall Not Grow Old, released in 25 theaters around the country on February 1, does for movie footage what Ken Burns did for still photography in The Civil War (1990).
