Anurag Kashyaps Black Friday is a superb and devastating piece of cinema that with justification can be compared favorably to Gillo Pontocorvos classic The Battle of Algiers in its dispassionate yet sweeping journalistic inquiry into cataclysmic social and political events. I think that the movie rarely catches fire as an involving human drama, but this is a large cast and complex criss-crossing

Epic and raw, Black Friday is cut from the same bloody cloth as "Salvador" and "Munich." Full Review

Despite its large cast and complex criss-crossing from past to present, the movie rarely catches fire as an involving human drama. Full Review

Opening with the Mohandas Gandhi epigram "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind," it humanizes the bombers without excusing their actions. Full Review
