What antiNazi films and their respective filmmakers should we take inspiration from in this time of dangerous epidemics of violent nationalism across the globe?
I'll make it slightly more difficult by bringing Casablanca (1942) into the original post. Now? What other antiNazi movies (other than Casablanca) should we the resisters of fascism use to inspire us against the fight for democracy and human rights?
The video that partly inspired this timely thread.
I looked for a good review or even a trailer for Square of Violence (1961).
Broderick Crawford is a doctor to German officers, even after Germans killed his son. One day he throws a bomb out a window and kills some ranking officers. The German commander suspects Crawford, but plays a cat and mouse game with him. First, he rounds up the men of the village and stands them in ranks in the village square. He informs Crawford he plans to shoot them all, if the bomber does not confess. He rejects Crawford's confession, telling him the bomber left something at the scene. In order to properly confess, the bomber must reveal that something. It's nerve wracking as the doctor tries to think what clue he might have left behind. He draws a continual blank. The story occurs in an occupied Italian village.
