The recreation of the murder and the subsequent investigation uses the techniques of an American thriller to gripping effect, though conspiracies are so commonplace nowadays that it's hard to imagine the impact it made at the time.

It's a film that bluntly and stylistically depicts the impotence of truth as a weapon against authoritarian injustice.

It is a film of our time. It is about how even moral victories are corrupted. It will make you weep and will make you angry. It will tear your guts out.

One of the most riveting political films ever made with its vivid depiction of the corrupt and corrosive lust for power.

The Frenchies smoke, drink, and mumble their way through the whole affair. There's no "intrigue," no matter what the critics say.

Costa-Garvas organizes the material brilliantly to maintain interest, gradually revealing new layers of intrigue as the plot unwinds Rashoman-like style

January 1, 2000
The usual excuse for films like this is that the crude melodrama helps communicate important political ideas and historical information, but Z doesn't communicate anything.
