THE AVENGERS

10/16/2012

 
Zac, Joss; why over forty minutes to get moving? You can label it "an installment" but it's a sequel: and it's too long. When half of your characters are flat & zombie-esque, especially the females, that means you might have too many characters. Some thrilling scenes... plenty of propaganda. 
 

A FILM UNFINISHED

03/15/2011

 
Artfully crafted and vitally important. Painful to watch. This Israeli documentary combines German footage (for a propaganda film) from the last months of the Warsaw Ghetto, testimony from the cinematographer, official reports from the Nazi in charge of the ghetto, and first hand reactions to the footage from actual survivors. Insightful supplemental material, including Billy Wilder's DEATH MILLS (1945.) In case you forgot about Man's inhumanity...
