  • Marighella

    As he listens to the biggest lies used to legally support his actions, the fascist spook nods along everything and signs his name to the farce. He stands up, and “Truth and Justice” is written is big letters just behind him. Powerful images.

  • The Mauritanian

    Mohamedou was brought to Gitmo in August 2002, and was only release the week before Trump was elected. He won the case that would set him free just as Obama was being elected. The wheels of justice move slowly, but can be greased by elections.

  • Colette

    Saucy old French Résistance fighter breaks down completely when visiting the concentration camp where her brother was killed. This is the first time she’s there, after 75 years. Accompanying her is a young historian studying the period, which gets a more raw look into her study subject.

  • Those Who Wish Me Dead

    If a film is shot all over green screen greenery and fire, can it be considered an animation film? Does the pope shit in the woods?

  • Lisbon Story

    Classic meta film about itself, where the characters fight with the meaning of the it all, with rants about advertising while containing product placement. The Madredeus soundtrack is appropriately eerie.

  • Grindhouse

    Gun-wielding go-go dancers gunning down goons, gleefully. Gurning guys gamble their guts.

  • Nomadland

    Million Dollar Baby.
