Anyone interested in seeing the film "Belfast" ought to checkout Netflix "Rebellion" first.

I have been reading about Ireland in preparation for watching "Belfast." I like to check out the history and culture of films about other countries culture and history before viewing the relevant films.

I highly recommend "Rebellion." The acting is awesome. It was out in 2016 but I had never seen it or heard about it.

GO BENGALS!!!

You may want to add "Occupied" to your list too. Ukraine may be living it right now. Samrob Feb 2022 #2

I have spent a lot of time during the pandemic being homebound watching flicks I probably never would have watched before. There have been a few series that were great.

Right now I am watching Netflix: "Occupied" I am only into the second Episode and it is blowing my mind. You can almost replace Norway with Ukraine and write a current new article. But it is really scary that this series makes losing our democracy seem even more possible. Warning: the series is captioned in English as the language if Norwiegian with some German. But after the first 5 minutes I became so intensely involved I thought I was speaking a foreign language. It's time for all of us to take off some blinders and really think seriously about what is going on around us.

OK I might be an alarmist but life may imitate art at times but art most always imitates life.

I too forget about a film being subtitled after a few minutes if it is good. Wow, your last sentence is very profound

‘Life May imitate art at times but most always imitates life’

I am truly alarmed at what is going on in the US, Canada, and Ukraine right now.
