backtrack; La battaglia di Algeri (1965)


Ruthless docu-styled dramatization of the Algerian urban guerrilla struggle for independence. Scarily reminiscent of some of today’s conflicts, depicting the terrible cost of even a righteous rebellion.

Surprisingly reflective – almost neutral in viewpoint despite the extremely charged content. In my book of strong and sad anti-colonialist masterpieces.
