It’s hard to imagine this Vietnam War escape film being made by Werner Herzog, and Christian Bale is probably to blame for it. Bale plays Dieter Dengler, the only American prisoner of war to escape from a prison camp deep in Laos during the war, enduring a grueling journey to survive the jungle and make his way home. A quiet thriller that generates tension just by giving it space, Rescue Dawn a good pick for a hot day when you want to watch someone who’s got it much, much worse than you. Available July 1.
