02.22.05Netflix man... tons of extras, tons of ululation, tons of yelling and screaming. this movie had to be huge when they made it... nowadays movies get an oscar if they can wrangle over a hundred people for one scene... this movie was huge and sprawling and stark and very docu-styled. I was reminded more than a bit of Rossellini's Rome, Open City... I can definitely see how the Frenchies didn't like this... i'd make a comparison to Fahrenheit 9/11 but Moore looks like a whiney little bitch compared to the authenticity and emotion sweating and bleeding here. I can see why Criterion did this movie up, but I don't think i'll be watching it over and over.
