Jim: The James Foley Story (M18)
Starring James Foley, Nicole Tung
Directed by Brian Oakes
This powerful Oscar-nominated docu about James Foley — the American war correspondent who was captured and murdered by Islamic State terrorists in 2014 — isn’t easy to sit through, especially towards the end as Foley’s fellow captives recount the final days before his execution.
As sad as it is, the docu is also a humbling tribute to the heroic conflict journalists who risk their lives to report the truth from the frontlines. On iTunes & Google Play (****1/2)
