  • Sunrise's rating of the film Fight for Us

    The intense acts of violence are quite effective in the horrors they illicit, and give much weight to the misaligned political structures that Brooke examines. Within bare cinematics, the poetics are clear: an ex-revolutionary balancing his two worlds via the children he has in each world; the small village of his rebellion past suppressed by Orapronpobis and the capitalistic city of his mediated liberal-seleb fight.
