This week we look at two of acclaimed British director Peter Watkins' formative amateur films: The Diary of an Unknown Soldier (1959) & The Forgotten Faces (1960). Perhaps best known for his later 1964 film Culloden and 1965's ground-breaking nuclear war film The War Game. These two early films are especially fascinating as you can see Watkin's distinct style develop through them.
