  1. klofter's rating of the film Burning Bush, Part 3

    Excellent. By reducing the scope somewhat (without losing focus on what's important), this packs exactly the kind of emotional punch parts 1 & 2 where lacking somewhat. And while the toxicity and hypocricy of totalitarian regimes are really put to task here, at no point does one feel like the filmmakers are moralizing. The story speaks for itself, as history does.

  2. ShawnD's rating of the film Burning Bush, Part 3

    I'm a sucker for personal stories presented against great historical upheaval like Doctor Zhivago, The Unbearable Lightness of Being and Reds, so I'm predisposed to liking the Burning Bush. It's not up to the level of the aforementioned classics but engaging all the same. Credit goes to Holland for keeping the story moving even though at its center, it's about a cipher.

  3. David R Williams's rating of the film Burning Bush, Part 3

    "The year is 1969. Russian troops invaded Czechoslovakia the year prior to stop a threatened push toward socialist reform, courtesy of Communist Secretary Alexander Dubcek. In protest, a student called Jan Palach took to the streets, doused himself in gasoline and lit a match." An utterly heart-breaking film. Good people struggling to do the right thing in a world created by Kafka.
