I was rather resistant to this because I tend not to like overtly political films.  I sat there with my arms crossed (well, not really, but in spirit), daring the film to engage me.  And it rose to the challenge.  Even though I was quite conscious of how much I was being manipulated to hate the “bad guys” (Costa-Gavras REALLY stacks the deck), I was still enraged and really wanted to see the motherfuckers get what was coming to them.  It’s a very exciting film with a great cast, and clever usage of flashbacks and time cuts.  There’s even some humor to it.  Intense and riveting.  Rating: 8
