If there's a better filmic explanation for how people can justify exploitation and colonialism, I don't know what it is.

As a follow-up to Battle of Algiers, Burn! is a flawed film, but it's worth seeing for its tone of outrage and provocative ideas about colonialism, big business, and slavery.

It seems timeless in its shrewd political and economic observations. It is as relevant today as it was then.

...despite a number of positives...Burn! nevertheless remains oddly aloof...

Pontecorvo's pointed 1969 drama of the politics of war feels surprisingly timely.

I don't think Queimada is as great a movie as Battle of Algiers, but it retains its vitality, its outrage, its savagery and its spirit.

A flawed, but intriguing work, it offers, here and there, proof of Pontecorvo's gift for ecstatic epic filmmaking.

It's a clunky political drama that features a cynical and unscrupulous Marlon Brando.
