    Punishment Park

    ★★★★★

    "You want me to tell you what's immoral? War is immoral! Poverty is immoral! Racism is immoral! Police brutality is immoral! Opression is immoral! Genocide is immoral! Imperialism is immoral! This country represents all those things!"

    Shot in cinéma-vérité style, British filmmaker Peter Watkins' this extraordinary pseudo-docudrama "Punishment Park" has established itself as a pioneering political film that is probably the most powerful and courageous work I've seen about protestation.

    Angelopoulos is probably the finest definition of that filmmaker who amalgamates poetry with political, cultural and historical accounts with such profundities.

    The film follows a cautious, conventional and introvert girl named Yoko (…

  • The Green Knight

    The Green Knight

    ★★★★

    Lowery's "The Green Knight" is precisely what one conjectures it is and offers what it pledges. His take on Arthurian legend is riched with spectacular visuals and the truths of life, properly incorporates the exotic and pleasing elements with Lowery's signature storytelling. This film welcomes the viewers to its lurid world which holds the mysteries of life and that's equally enigmatic and majestic.

    Based on the 14-th century poem, "Sir Gawain and The Green Knight", film takes us on an…
