"_The Battle of Algiers_...remains the basis of Pontecorvo's fame --
a model of how, without prejudice or compromise, a film-maker can
illuminate history and tell us how we repeat the same mistakes.  In
fact, this study of the Algerian guerrilla struggle against the
French colonialists in the 50s ought to be looked at not just as pure
cinema but as a warning to those who seek by force to crush
independence movements." -- Derek Malcolm, _The Guardian_

"What we have witnessed is a radical transformation of the means of
perception, of the very world of perception."
- Frantz Fanon, _A Dying Colonialism_
