Underground

I'd wanted to see this movie for years and am glad to have finally seen it because it did not disappoint at all. Completely absurd. So political. 100 percent brilliant.

The soundtrack is one of the best ever ever ever. I can't get the raging horn arrangements out of my head. The movie is truly nutso. Lots of dancing, yelling, and smashing glasses. Somewhat Felliniesque but for the most part completely original.

The film takes place from the beginning of the German invasion of Belgrade in 1941 up through the Balkan fighting in the early 90's. Truly a supreme work of art and a must see movie. Don't waste any more time reading this crap review and add this shit to your Netflix Queue!
