Rockin' the Casbah

"The word "torture" doesn't appear in our orders."

Clip from The Battle of Algiers directed by Gillo Pontecorvo (1966)

If you haven't seen this movie, I think you should add it to the top of your Netflix queue. Or borrow it from the local library. And if you really like what you see, may I then suggest reading Frantz Fanon's The Wretched of the Earth? Oops, I just did.
