Filmed in widescreen Technirama, the gripping epic Zulu depicts the 1879 Battle of Rorke’s Drift, fought between a station of colonial British soldiers and an army of Zulu warriors. Stephen Dade’s brilliant cinematography brings the viewer right into the middle of the incredibly tense battle scenes. Zulu has been cited as an influence by Peter Jackson (on The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers) and by Ridley Scott (on Gladiator). Starring Michael Caine, Stanley Baker, and Jack Hawkins. (139 mins., DCP)
