  2. JimB17's rating of the film Moloch tropical

    Thoroughly captivating account of the descent into madness of a dictator and the trials of those around him who were loyal to the end and may even have loved him in spite of his evil.

  3. Ben Dooley's rating of the film Moloch tropical

    Terrific - a chamber piece with a strong sense of the psyche of these kleptocratic 'democratic' dictatorships that seem to be toppling down all around us at the moment. An expertly crafted screenplay based around a castle and focused on the leader, his government and his family, as the revolution grows outside. With beautiful natural photography of the mists and forests below, and stylish framing and use of colour.

  4. ALICEALICE's rating of the film Moloch tropical

    Zinedine Soualem is mesmerising in the role of a fictional Haitian president, holding on to power and to reality by one very thing thread. A "huis-clos" that sporadically opens up on a compelling natural and political landscape: beautiful cinematography all along. The critique is razor-sharp yet sprinkled with humour. A great movie.

  5. msmichel's rating of the film Moloch tropical

    Excellent picture transplanting Sokurov's "Moloch" setting to a Haitian mountaintop castle. Zinedine Soualem gives a breathtaking performance as le president who like his power mad Shakespearean ancestors slowly loses his bearings and sanity. The layers of bureaucracy, self serving ministers and the working poor amongst them add layer upon layer to the already intricate script. A total pleasure and Peck's best yet.

  8. Nancy Stark's rating of the film Moloch tropical

    Racist portrayal. Tedious.

  9. Giulio Riccardi's rating of the film Moloch tropical

    Captivating and sleek, Moloch Tropical speaks human rights and drama. A must-see movie by Raoul Peck, Haitian political activist other than brilliant engaged director.

  10. Vassilis Tsitsopoulos's rating of the film Moloch tropical

    A colossally dishonest film. I was filled with dread and disgust all the time I was watching it. Peck and his white European producers should be ashamed.

  11. safran's rating of the film Moloch tropical

  13. Ethan's rating of the film Moloch tropical

    A very dark and powerful drama about a leader's downfall.

  14. Den-Leroy Kangalee's rating of the film Moloch tropical

    Brilliant satiric-portrait of a corrupt pathetic Haitian leader. With a nod towards Sokurov's "Moloch" (in which Hitler is seen as an actual human being) Peck's "Moloch Tropical" does the same but in a surrealistic and absurd way.It is blunt,poetic,maddening,and shows the broader spectrum of Black people of the diaspora and how colonization, history, racism, and self -hatred have lingered well into the 21st century.
