No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
A sprawling, rowdy, vital film laced with both outrageous absurdist dark humor and unspeakable pain, suffering and injustice.
The film can be both frenetic and strained. But it also has has a great deal of power and can be quite haunting.
Brilliant, outrageous filmmaking. Underground is touching, hilarious, and new.
Offers a zany overview of the treacherous path of politics in Yugoslavia leading to the outbreak of civil war in 1992.
One of the great moviegoing experiences of recent years -- a work of staggering sadness, vitality, and comic invention that's as awe-inspiring a spectacle in its own unhinged way as Titanic.
So passionate, so exciting and so very odd at times that most of its obvious faults can be forgiven.
For anyone who's an aficionado of film, this is pure, unadulterated bliss.
It's a heady mix, charmingly idealistic and bracingly clear-eyed, powerful and sad, and it sticks with you, and in you.
One of the most ribald, risky and madcap war movies ever filmed.
