"The second half feels so disjointed from the first - if either remained consistent throughout, I would have few complaints. As it stands, the pacing is brutal at times, despite admirable performances, polished editing, and a sweltering (almost feverish) atmosphere. The final act didn’t work for me whatsoever."
54 19% Civil War (2024) - Rated 14 Apr 2024
"Spaeny is great. The rest is mediocre and either disillusioned or dishonest about its intentions. Instead, watch: Nightcrawler, Children of Men, Come and See, Do the Right Thing, any film by Peter Watkins, or documentaries about real wars. Or if you want to watch the destruction of American landmarks (which is fine), just shamelessly watch a Roland Emmerich film like the rest of us."
60 23% Last Tango in Paris (1972) - Rated 13 Apr 2024
83 68% Salvatore Giuliano (1962) - Rated 08 Apr 2024
"With only a general understanding of what is happening and what it means historically, most of my enjoyment came from the tense, expertly visualized set pieces, of which there are plenty. The way the camera moves is electric at times. Comparable to Battle of Algiers or Z in terms of blood-boiling political thrillers of this era."

"Grew on me as it went by, until the final three vignettes simply blew me away."
