  • Ale/M's rating of the film Black Block

    another films about the days of Genoa, the most important days for the generation that grew up in the years between old and new century. my generation. good one or bad one, I don't care. what is completely misleading is the title of the doc. if you want to know something more about the Black Block, you can't find nothing here. almost nothing. a wasted opportunity

  • ConallVision's rating of the film Black Block

    I think the story of the victims of the Genoa protests needs to be told and listened to, but I have some problems with the etiquette and ethics of this documentary. The film only shows one side of an argument...albeit a very strong argument. I think the film has a very strong anti-fascist agenda which I find to be a form of propaganda. I was disgusted and saddened by what happened!!
