Tony Zhou : “Four years after his passing, we still haven’t quite caught up to Satoshi Kon, one of the great visionaries of modern film. In just four features and one TV series, he developed a unique style of editing that distorted and warped space and time. Join me in honoring the greatest Japanese animator not named Miyazaki.”
The Battle of Algiers (1965) dir. Gillo Pontecorvo
If you want to understand current wars/conflicts you need to watch this film. It shows the human side and the political side. From the high politics to the military to the people on the streets - this film shows it all. For 1965 the film was daring to depict a suicide bombing by a Muslim woman. If you want to know what Middle-East conflict really means - watch this.
