  • Seeing Red: Stories of American Communists

    Seeing Red: Stories of American Communists

    ★★★½

    The American communists interviewed in Seeing Red are forever devastated by the "Secret Speech" of 1956. To our present, the question of whether Khrushchev lied or how much was truth might haunt (if you are so inclined).

    A counter-history on the topic is available to read by Domenico Losurdo in Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and hopefully soon in English.

  • The Goat

    The Goat

    ★★★½

    THE GOAT. The title can refer to Harun Farocki.

  • Fatal Assistance

    Fatal Assistance

    ★★★½

    After colonialism's infamy became insurmountable in public relations, the binary of developed and underdeveloped became the preferred method. The promotion of developmentalism in the Third World was in reality the metropole’s backhanded and reinvigorated intention to control the wealth and resources of the formerly colonized. Sometime at the end of the last century, in Haiti, the narrative of development was replaced with a new narrative of patronizing humanitarian aid. Raoul Peck’s Assistance Mortelle (2013) is a welcomed exposé of this, although like in I Am Not Your Negro (2016), Peck's clichéd documentary forms detract from the strength of the message.

  • Geronimo: An American Legend

    Geronimo: An American Legend

    ★★★½

    Geronimo: An *Apache Legend

    Fucking yanquis, man...
