  1. Stevie's rating of the film The Hour of the Furnaces

    Wow! This is basically a long, fluent political essay although there's nothing basic about it. It is a desperate call for revolution and for the necessary armed struggle to achieve it. It provides a comprehensive outlook on Argentine society and on its turbulent political history. Some of the filmed footage is remarkable. On the whole, this is perhaps the very height of political cinema.

  2. Bram Vroonland's rating of the film The Hour of the Furnaces

    Every frame is a bullet in this agitating documentary.

  3. Videograms's rating of the film The Hour of the Furnaces

    "In their rebellion, Latin Americans reclaim their existence."

  4. Amin Lumière's rating of the film The Hour of the Furnaces

  5. Jordan Kaltz's rating of the film The Hour of the Furnaces

    5 stars for part one!!! need to watch the rest asap

  6. F.Bieberkopf's rating of the film The Hour of the Furnaces

    Quite an important film, formally more than anything else. Embodies all the essential 'tropes' of Latin American radical filmmaking. In that regard, it is a representative film of the 'genre' despite it's slogan mongering ambitions. Yes, I would happily choose a Marker or even a Kramer over this, but nevertheless a very important film. I will love Solanas though for the feature films he made later.

  8. Garth Heutel's rating of the film The Hour of the Furnaces

    All three parts are now on Youtube.

  9. choi kam chuen's rating of the film The Hour of the Furnaces

    This powerful film is very important for the study of Third cinema. The fact that it is not in circulation (although there is a site to download it for free but I won't encourage that) makes it a strong candidate for Auteur to acquire and display it.

  10. TFCHooligan69's rating of the film The Hour of the Furnaces

    This remarkable documentary achievement raises questions and issues that are just as relevant today as they were back then.

  11. rick powell's rating of the film The Hour of the Furnaces

    So I can't watch an Argentine film while living in Argentina? O Copy Right, Thou art broken.

  12. Jesse Furgurson's rating of the film The Hour of the Furnaces

    Whatever you think of the message, many sequences are brilliantly conceived and assembled. This is a rare bird: sophisticated, didactic leftist filmmaking that might have real world efficacy. (This is only for Part 1. I have yet to see the others.)

  13. gongoina's rating of the film The Hour of the Furnaces

    reality hurts. liberalisation and even some notches of it is almost always achieved through inhuman suffering. Max Horkheimer had a point:"Wer vom Kapitalismus nicht reden will, der sollte vom Faschismus schweigen."

  14. Gondo's rating of the film The Hour of the Furnaces

    As someone with little knowledge of this particular time in Latin-Americas History the quite expansive exposition in the first hour was in all honesty a little bit overwhelming at first. Same goes for the transportation of the message where the word "propaganda" comes to mind. But thats the whole point, the Hour of the Furnaces is a machine gun aimed at your chest, ready to fire, hit and affect you. And it worked!

  15. Kilgore Trout's rating of the film The Hour of the Furnaces

    I've been dying to see this for years. Just bought it on ioffer. Can't wait.

  16. adrianmendizabal's rating of the film The Hour of the Furnaces

    One outstanding 4-hr documentary film about the struggle of Latin American in fighting imperialistic and neocolonialistic forces. Its exposition of the history of civil resistance in the region is immensely detailed and ideologically grounded exposing fist hand accounts of impunity, violence and overt oppression of Argentine government. Truly the leading film of the Third cinema movement!

  17. Walberto's rating of the film The Hour of the Furnaces

    For those in Los Angeles, this four hour Masterpiece will be shown Saturday, March 19 at 2:00 pm at LACMA, followed by another great film, Straub and Huillets, "The Chronicle of Anna Magdalena Bach" at 7:30pm; what an intersting double-bill :)

  18. phung's rating of the film The Hour of the Furnaces

    Still revolutionary today. Because it was never intended for commercial distribution, bootlegs are rampant, so you can probably find it to download.
