A tour-de-force of great political and social importance, director Gillo Pontecorvo's "Battle of Algiers" (1966) is made even more impressive in its new, Blu-ray form. A 'docudrama' about Algeria's fight for independence from the French in the 1950s, thefilm blends narrative film making and documentary footage to present a real life "David vs. Goliath story." Showing us both sides of the conflict and the inevitable tragedy occurring from it, the film focuses on the regular people most harmed by lofty, political decisions. Nominated for three Academy Awards (including Best Screenplay, Best Director, and Best Foreign Language Film), this film is presented in all its splendor in two discs, giving viewers the film in high definition, along with a special features disc with supplements containing the 'making of,' as well as insight towards the full political and historical context surrounding its story. A marvelous piece of film making that is sure to startle and touch anyone who sees it.
