Astoundingly, this "documentary" completely edits out the far right neo-Nazi involvement in the uprising. These Netflix docs are effective disinformation tools.

Excellent quality, but no English subtitles:

You've survived these 18 hours in Vietnam. Now watch the 1974 documentary Hearts and Minds and make it an even 20.

I second fungus' comment. Also, you should read about Colonia Dignidad "Dignity Colony" before watching this frenetic paper mache nightmare.

I was drawn to this movie by Roger Ebert's Great Movies list. Like other commenters, I was expecting something else. spoiler Saturday Night Fever mercilessly portrays 70’s hypermasculine culture, but in a way in which the male characters act with impunity. While having some interesting things to say about class, racism and cycles of violence, I was most struck by the misogyny in this film.

"What a rotten film." Godard punishes everyone here, including the viewer. That said, for enduring the many meaningless monologues we're at least rewarded with sequences that might bewilder even Buñuel.

Underrated. Three middle aged men deal with a friend's death and their own mortality in the only way they know how, by shirking grown-up responsibilities and being boys-- lots of drinking, yelling, pushing, laughing, and chasing girls (much of which is improvised). It's unpredictable, awkward, and oftentimes hilarious, not to mention a sobering critique of middle class husbands. Those expecting any type of straightforward narrative will be disappointed.
