    Anurag Kashyap's Black Friday is a superb and devastating piece of cinema that with justification can be compared favorably to Gillo Pontocorvo's classic "The Battle of Algiers" in its dispassionate yet sweeping journalistic inquiry into cataclysmic social and political events. show more

    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 from past to present.
