Les anarchistes

Elie Wajeman France, 2015

mootz15's rating of the film The Anarchists

I give this movie 3 stars because of the Kinks track and the scene in the bar where the individualist is arguing with the communists. You won't find anything like that in any other movie because anarchism on film today is at best a played out cartoon villain or sordid identity politics. That said, the historical angle is ultimately very shallow and the movie is essentially a bottom-shelf love-gone-wrong story.
