Post Challenge - has anyone here seen Moolaade
Hi everyone,

This is a very rare film that seems to garner awesome reviews.

An African movie directed by Ousmane Sembene

I saw it at the cinema about 10 years ago and would strongly recommend anyone interested in world cinema to check it out
I loved it and it sticks with me - even ten years later

It scores a miserable 99% on Rotten tomatoes

James hated it with 3.5 stars

Ebert gave it 4 stars

just a thought
Rob

It's one of those movies I really want to see but haven't yet. I would bump it up to the top of my queue right now, but I've heard from a couple sources that the DVD quality is horrible, and I'm not sure I want to soil the experience at all with a whacky disc. Hey! Pedro! Watch that movie and report back here! I need a quality report!

If it's any consolation at all Rob, I have seen Black Girl, Sembene's first feature from the early 60s. It's a very powerful experience. If you haven't seen it, I recommend looking it up.

I saw it a while ago. First heard about when Siskel and Ebert (I think) gushed over it and made it a point to watch it.

I saw the start on cable, but unfortunately something came up and I couldn't finish. We should add this to the Reelviews movie club list. That is, if the thing catches on.
