Holy-moly this movie is a mind-blower. It’s made up of entirely found footage… there’s advertisements with smooth seventies disco tunes, old propaganda films and news footage airplane hijackings… lot’s of hijackings! You may not know this but in the 60’s and 70’s people were snatchin’ planes left and right. They we’re like “Gimme this shit, I’m goin’ to Cuba!”. People act like 9/11 was the first terrorist thing that ever happened. Newsflash! Terror happens all the time everywhere! A few decades ago taking a plane for your revolutionary cause was the thing to do. Johan Grimonprez takes a look at this phenomenon and ponders the meaning of terror over a snazzy soundtrack by David Shea. If you like exploding planes, you’ll love this movie. Be prepared to be emotionally drained after watching this… laughter, joy, tears & horror, this documentary’s got it all.
