The US vs john lennon - 1:36:35

The Great Dictator - 2:05:15
Director: Charles Chaplin.
Great Dictator is a beyond-excellent film. Charlie Chaplin succeeds in
being both extremely funny and witty and yet at the same time provides
a strong statement in his satire against fascism. The anti-Nazi speech
by Chaplin at the end, with its values, is one of filmdom's great
moments. Throughout this movie, I sensed there was some higher form of
intelligence, beyond genuinely intelligent filmmaking, at work.
|| AMEN - 2:05:42
Director: Costa Gavras.
movie is based on a play by German playwright Rolf Hochhuth which
started a lot of heated discussions and arguments after its first
release in 1963. It even caused some diplomatic tensions.
The Vatican did not give a permission to shoot the film in their
buildings. After searching a scenery of adequate size for the scenes
taking place in the Vatican, Costa-Gavras finally chose Europe's
largest building, the House of the People (Casa Poporului) in
Bucharest. Some of the outdoor scenes were shot in Mogosoaia Palace,
some fourteen kilometers northwest of Bucharest
