  1. Rice Dream Girl's rating of the film State of Siege

    Costa-Gavras appears to have only one loyalty, and it's to the innate value of each human life. His work reveals his wisdom and is ever-enlightening.

  2. Christopher McQuain's rating of the film State of Siege

  3. Aardsy's rating of the film State of Siege

    Exposing responsibility and obliviousness.

  4. DSPRKY's rating of the film State of Siege

    Feels like a misstep after Z.

  5. Lorna Singh's rating of the film State of Siege

    Filmed in Chile during the presidency of Salvador Allende. An important piece of history because it is still relevant.

  6. L.F.G.'s rating of the film State of Siege

  7. Louis Léonard's rating of the film State of Siege

  8. Daniel S.'s rating of the film State of Siege

    Political movie. Prix Louis-Delluc 1972. The Costa-Gavras film underlines the American secret involvement in the political affairs of South American countries in the 60's and the 70's. What has fallen now into the public domain wasn't so evident when State of Siege was shot. Truth was never neutral then: either you were a communist either you were a fascist when it came to give an opinion about this topic. See it!

  9. Bernardo Anderson's rating of the film State of Siege

    Costa-Gravas does the best political thrillers I've ever seen.

  10. Jason's rating of the film State of Siege

    Looks great, very well directed, super on-the-nose, lecture-like (I do not require this lecture), and WHY THE HELL ARE THESE PEOPLE SPEAKING FRENCH!?! If you are obligated to make this movie in French then make another goddamn movie instead. And if yr business model includes selling us Yves Montand as an American then I can assure you that you are destined to go belly up.

  11. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film State of Siege

    An essential film, one that cogently explains the state of the world today as it did in the 1970s. A timely re-release (2014) that will hopefully inspire a new generation. Of thinkers.

  12. john's rating of the film State of Siege

    this should be shown in every american school

  13. Stephen Campbell's rating of the film State of Siege

  14. Slowart's rating of the film State of Siege

    pierre-william glenn creates striking images (opening sequence with a car) but the overall impression is that of political inelegance / throughout the screening i couldn't stop thinking about bellocchio's poetic buongiorno, notte and schrader's ambivalent patty hearst
