What are people saying?

  • Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Homeland

    4.5. Documentary made as the first rumble of the Soviet collapse sounds: hundreds of thousands of Latvians converge on the capital and sing songs banned for fifty years; meanwhile the government debates secession and Russian tanks start moving in. In just over an hour captures the dark years of the region under the Soviets: mass deportations, military conscription, destruction of historical sites. A moving document.
