They Shall Not Grow Old (Peter Jackson, 2018). This is that documentary that Jackson did with all the WWI footage – very fiddled-around with, with colorized images and sound effects and some pretty good method for getting the variable-speed silent stuff to look smooth. You can argue about manhandling historical material like that, but it’s hard to deny how strong the effect is. Weird, though, at the same time.
