Re: The Battle of Algiers
Yes, a great movie - Giles Pontecorvo was the director, I think, if my memory serves me right. For a film made in the sixties, it gives a remarkably balanced appraisal of the Algerian independance movement. The DVD comes as 3-disc set which has alot of bonus material, including interviews with the director and documentaries about the troubles in French north africa - well worth it. In the post-9/11 world, it is an exceptionally poignant film.
