La Haine

La Haine ★★★★★

The first assignment for my directing class was to watch a favorite movie with director’s commentary, so I threw on this all timer that I hadn’t seen in two years. Just as masterful & relevant as ever, with so much amazing insight from Kassovitz about the making of & authenticity that went into this production. Love how the narrative veers dangerously close to neoliberalism throughout, only to brutally subvert it in one of the most shocking yet earned endings in all of film. Mandatory viewing
