Dark brilliance like the Mass Onyx that brought this curse to our cultures.
This has to be one of the finest films I have ever seen. Not the Hollywood propaganda regurgitated kosher crap, but a dark expose of a subject long overdue for some sunlight. But be warned though, this film doesn't put bangles and lipstick on a monkey and call her Sally; its an artists and philosophers film about a tragic aspect of modern society our psychopathic leaders profit from while playing dumb. It is definitely not for the shallow thinkers, or someone seeking light entertainment. To anyone who has walked in the shoes this film portrays, either via a family member or personally, the genius of this film will be readily apparent and chill you to the bone. The actors, mainly 1st timers were all superb. Shot in Buda and Pest, Hungary should be proud of this one. It is a very sadly magnificent film.
