Battle of Algiers

With the opening weeks of the new administration marked by political protest, Adam and Josh invite critic Michael Sicinski to share his Top 5 Political Resistance Movies. Plus, they cross off a major shared blind spot – the seminal resistance film THE BATTLE OF ALGIERS (1966) – and discuss the next film in their Luis Bunuel Marathon, TRISTANA.

This episode of Filmspotting is brought to you by Squarespace (code FILM).
