    The Battle of Algiers

    ★★★★★

    11/10.

    Shot in a Rossellini-esque newsreel-documentary style, "The Battle of Algiers" summons the spirit of Italian neorealism, but is even more unflinchingly brutal. It pulls no punches, it takes no political sides, and, as Robert Tepper would say, there's no easy way out, there's no shortcut home - for anyone. Men, women and children are both perpetrators of hideous crimes and innocent victims, every revolution comes at a high price and eats its children, and no film is as refreshingly honest about it as this one.

    There are minute goofs and inconsistencies, but make no mistake - this is indubitably a masterpiece.

Ради се уопште…

    Rewatching a few HH films as a preparation for a new blog post.

    I have always loved this film and that hasn't changed yet. It has its fair share of similarities with "Casablanca", but it is far from a rip-off. The writing is excellent, the performances are wonderful (Bacall shines in her debut, this is the best of the four with her husband, if not the best one ever), Walter Brennan is expectedly great and the others don't let the…
