The war film has reportedly proven to be one of Netflix''s most reliable genres, if it were talking about action-packed epics or shocking scenes, but none of them are equally disturbing as Operation Mincemeat, which reveals a tale that was so fantastic that you wouldn''t even believe it was true.
In 1943, veteran filmmaker John Maddens latest recounts how the British conspired to persuade Nazis to consider that an invasion of Greece was imminent by placing false documents on a dead body and having it wash ashore in a setting where it would easily be discovered by the enemy.
Given the diversity of subterfuge on display, it''s even more remarkable that future James Bond creator Ian Fleming was one of the key players in the scheme, but that barely scratches the surface of the left-field ingenuity on display. For film that is required to transcend so many disparate genre lines at one time, it''s an impressive feat that Operation Mincemeat manages to pull it off.
Operation Mincemeat, which has received an impressive Rotten Tomatoes rating, has also been storming the Netflix charts as per FlixPatrol. Despite being sent straight to streaming internationally, Operation Mincemeat has even achieved its second spot in the United States.
It''s no surprise that Netflix subscribers have discovered themselves instantly ashamed by the narrative, a frightening old-fashioned adventure with a talented cast on top form.
