Zack Snyder Stany Zjednoczone, 2006

HKFanatic's rating of the film 300

Younger viewers may not realize that, upon release, "300" was lambasted by some critics as an implicit endorsement of Bush's foreign policy and the pre-emptive strike on Iraq. Somehow this reading, along with the film's troubling depictions of Otherness and masculinity, are just part of why Zack Snyder's speed-ramped, Grecian gorefest remains such a compelling and provocative film experience some twelve years later.
