One of the movies I have been wanting to see for quite some time is "The Battle of Algiers", a truely amazing looking film about how a bitter war of terrorism in Algeria -- one which killed indiscriminately -- transformed that country and resulted in the withdrawl of French occupying forces. The film's trailer looks absolutely riveting.

"The Battle of Algiers" is currently playing locally at the Shattuck Theatre in Berkeley. Must see it before it goes away...!
