Hatred (Wolyn), 2016.

To me, this movie really points to what a powerful (and devastating) effect an ideology can have on a simpler minded folk. I admit it is a bit biased as it is a Polish-made and it recounts historical events (1939) as seen primarily from a polish perspective (which made it controversial), but I think there is plenty of blame to go around on both sides (actually on all 4 sides). It is a good history reminder.

I tried to watch it on Youtube, but it is one of those where you have to sign up, otherwise the only version is in Polish? Did you see it at the cinema or online?

From the trailer it looks quite interesting.

This movie was really sad.

Sadness particularly for the women and children.

The depravity and savageness of men alongside supposedly 'men' of God.

I can't recall ever seeing such realism in a film and at times it was almost unbearable to watch.

The last scene with the little boy clutching the man's arm in the cart brought tears to my eyes.

For such a joyless story, I am inclined not to rate it.

Nevertheless I give it 10.

My Polish pal recounted stories of her family's near past, and they are scarred beyond belief as a family.. something their newer generations will probably help fade during their lifetimes. I will send my pal the link and attempt to watch it myself, but I am not a fan of heartstrings being pulled, so I will try not to get mad and persevere through it.

I also found it hard to watch at times, and maybe that's because I'm predominantly Polish by blood. The older I get, however, the more I am bothered by such graphic recreations of wanton cruelty and the gore of innocents. Especially when it portrays real groups of people and still-present political entities. I'm wary of the emotional strings being pulled in such a film. Still, I find Wolyn (Volhynia), both the film and the historical event, to have important, even timely, examples to learn from. I would say they pushed it too far in some places, although it is hard to judge what people need to see and what they don't. I also find it a little too real to be able to rate as a film, but thank you for sharing it here.

Realive (Proyecto Lazaro), (2016) - A young man with a terminal brain cancer decides to cryogenically preserve himself in order to be revived by the future medicine. After he is successfully revived in the future, he begins to question his life, and life in general, and whether he made the right choice. The idea for the movie is very interesting, and there are some good questions raised by it, but I do wish they flushed some of these ideas out a bit more. Though I believe the movie did make its point (and the end was good). 7/10
[I suppose hypothetically, it's possible to commit suicide in order to live and also in order to die]

Fearless (1993) - A bit older, but along the same lines. A man gets a second chance in life by surviving an airplane crash. He's good at helping other survivors but has difficulty readjusting back to his old life himself. It's a really well done psychological drama, and gives a good insight into someone who's going through a PTSD.

Twisted Seduction (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QUwSlqKsak&t=213s)
A great, low-budget independent thriller 8.5/10. Their budget was $30,000 and they made every penny count.
