Plot Outline:

Costa-Gavras chronicles the overthrow of the democratic government in Greece. When a liberal politician is murdered in an attack during a peace demonstration, the right wing established figures in the military and the police try and hide not only their parts in it, but try to cover up the murder as well. The magistrate must act as a detective in order to go through the cover up. While historically accurate, it is told as a combination mystery and thriller

Rating of
4/4 

The single greatest political thriller of all time comes in the form of a pop-culture realisation of the assassination of a relatively obscure Greek politician. An absurd statement, certainly, but a sincere one nonetheless.

You have to watch closely to follow the plot of this political thriller, which moves very quickly, but the documentary style of story-telling is engrossing and thrilling.

Rating of
3/4 

A darkly-powerful French drama full of intrigue, spice, scandal, and action. This espionage thriller will be mentioned forever as one of the greatest French films of all time. Though, I must say, even for an older film, this was sickeningly slow and much too convoluted to do much good for modern audiences.
