The Battle of Algiers

Gillo Pontecorvo's near-legendary 1965 account of the bloodiest revolution in modern history feels surprisingly timely in today's war-torn world. The film was originally commissioned by the Algerian government and features a surprisingly unbiased account of events. The French military, smarting from the loss in Vietnam, came home and found itself facing the threat of separatists in Algeria. While the Algerians placed bombs in soda shops, the French government tortured and killed hundreds. Today, the film reminds us that no one emerges from war innocent, unscathed and "victorious." Though a fictionalized recreation of events, the film features lots of footage shot at the time of the revolt. A real landmark. 117 minutes
