I saw this one a while ago and it's probably one of the best anti-war movies around.
One day the 'rain' will come and wash all the scum off the streets
A groundbreaking documentary about 911 which chiefly covers the Pentagon evidence of conspiracy as well as that at the World Trade Center. Brilliantly done with an excellent soundtrack which keeps the video moving along a quick yet well paced and documented pace. Part 1 of 1. The entire Documentary is here, and in a higher quality than is available elsewhere on the Internet. Probably the most watched 911 Documentary done on 911, seen by perhaps as many as 50 MILLION people worldwide. Has shown on National TV stations in over a dozen different countries! Our great nation in is dire danger, so please make sure you post this video on your websites and blogs and help spread the word that 911 was an inside job, and a conspiracy of significant proportions, and we, as Americans need to stand up and fight the terrible lies and injustice of 911 as well as demand those truly responsible be held accountable, arrested, tried and convicted. Our very Freedoms depend on this!
Here's a pretty good movie. I actually watched it all and it leaves an impression. And all the reviews I've read are also quite good. Highly recommended.
Mirage - Macedonian movie (with English subtitles)
There's a brief moment when Svetozar Ristovski's "Mirage: A Boy's Hope in a Land of Broken Dreams" looks as if it's going to be a Macedonian version of one of those American teacher-as-hero stories: a student at risk is urged on by a sensitive educator, beats the odds and wins the spelling bee or college scholarship or whatever. But Macedonia is not the United States, and "Mirage" is no feel-good fable. It's a grim look at the life of one boy in a country that, at least in Mr. Ristovski's view, seems to have nothing but grimness to offer. Mr. Ristovski's story (written with Grace Lea Troje) feels a bit underdeveloped, but the film, full of racist and misogynistic dialogue and bluntly proclaiming that hope is for suckers, opens an unnerving window on a Balkan country that was near civil war in 2001 and may still be simmering.
Hundred of years ago, the forces of light and darkness faced each other in a very violent battle on a bridge. In order to avoid the total slaughter, their leaders agree to have an armistice. Along the centuries, the two balanced sides are divided and the forces of light watch and control the vampires, a.k.a. as the forces of night. Among the humans lives "The Others", i.e., persons with supernatural powers including witches, sorcerers and vampires and with the free will to choose which side to join. The legend says that the two forces will be unbalanced by "The Great Other", and the side this powerful being selects will win the battle. In 1992, in Moscow, Anton Gorodetsky joins the forces of the light while hiring a witch for a black magic. In the present days, he faces the consequences of his act.
No Man's Land (Bosnian: Nièija Zemlja) is a war drama that is set in the midst of the Bosnian war in 1993. The film is a parable with a tone of ironic black comedy. The film marked the debut of writer and director Danis Tanoviæ. The film is a co-production between companies in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Slovenia, Italy, France, Belgium and the UK.

Nice post stefan. Even without subtitles, the images spoke volumes. One of the better docs I've seen on WWI. In the US virtually nothing is mentioned of that time regarding what was happening in Serba or true Serbia history. Except that all you guys are anarchists and assasins

Proto-Orchid: @ussrstrong: I blame general low activity on social medias, all the people sit there today

reznik: @proto-Orchid: very true. What's worse, is that the system is designed specifically to keep those people dormant in their echo chambers. Nothing new to learn for them there, just stupid cat videos and such. Sad.

Proto-Orchid: Its the substitute for going out, meeting and spending your time with friends in real life. Its just part of the story. When I was younger I remember people were meeting to play team sports, but today you see completely autistic people jogging with iPhone.
Oct 14, 2018 18:18:38 GMT -5
Proto-Orchid: Then they come back home, put pictures on Instagram or Facebook to show off how they spent their time jogging, and as mental satisfaction they get few likes or hearts, or whatever social medias have today, which is a measure of how good their life is. Sick
