Sticks And Stones

I have it on good authority that “I Declare War” is awesome. The premise, at least, is head-slappingly brilliant in that “Why didn’t I think of that??” way: Film follows a group of kids “playing war” in the woods, and uses editing and FX to show their sticks and balloons turning into the guns and grenades they imagine them to be. I’ll be interested to see how it’s received, since even though this is all supposed to be imaginary the sight of moppets swinging around automatic weapons has become incendiary in and of itself.
