What are people saying?

  • José Neves's rating of the film The Wall

    4,5. A blu-ray projection that wasn't in the best conditions. A rare Romanian film strongly related with the Polish avant-garde cinema of the previous decade, from Skolimowsky to Wajda. A political utopia -the possibility of a communist uprising, which in Poland was the barrier itself to utopia- associated with a permanent formal invention of times permanently criss-crossed, with constant stimulating editing phrases.
