Benjamin Willems's rating of the film The Republic

This film contributes to a future where film is a more diverse and interesting ecosystem. This is important. It is visually unique and aurally surprising. It shows range and ventures beyond the sounds of real life. Listen for the doorbells. Listen for the self-conscious performances. It treats its libertarian outsiders and ecigarette enthusiasts with seriousness. This is important. Mobarak's narration is incredible.
