Carré 35 is a documentary about a guy who's uncovering the truth about something his parents hid from him (it has to do with the death of child), and equating that with the Algerian War and colonialism (because his parents where French people living in Morocco and Algeria at the time). It's well-done, but digusting., both because of that parallel and the inquisitive nature of the whole process. It's basically a guy whining (implicitely) that his parents lied to him about something one totally gets why they would lie about... that's annoying enough, when you equate with colonialism it's just... no. It raises interesting questions and stuff, but no.

Sounds exactly why I hated Caché.

It was a huge misfire by the studio not having The Snowman streamable by now, I was super ready to rent it last night.

Also, Sandy Wexler isn't that bad.
