Mike Campbell is one of the few white farmers left in Zimbabwe since its leader, Robert Mugabe, enacted his disastrous land redistribution program. Once the breadbasket of Africa, Zimbabwe has since spiraled into chaos, the economy decimated as farms given to Mugabe cronies are run into ruin. After enduring years of intimidation and threats, Campbell decides to take action. Unable to call upon help from his country's authorities, he challenges Mugabe before an international court.

(ag) wrote: Cassel is brilliant, the cinematography is beautiful in its industrial bleakness. However, we never really dig deep into the destruction of the two main characters.

(jp) wrote: (75%)Deeply dark, yet still somehow uplifting film centred around someone in perhaps one of the very worst upbringings imaginable. The way this layers on the grief is at times gut-wrenchingly painful meaning this should by rights be almost unbearable to watch, but it isn't, as by the end this is all about how it is possible not to give in even when everything, and I mean everything, is going against you. It would have been easy for this to turn into a TV movie, but thanks to the solid cast and good writing it's way too good for that. And any film that touches upon such upsetting concepts and yet still manages to be actually funny in places and overall enjoyable to watch is pulling off quite a rare trick.

(au) wrote: A surprisingly restrained performance by Bob Deniro is a welcome one, but isn't enough to turn this thick melodrama into something great. It's a shame Caton-Jones dwelled for so long (3 years) in the editing room on how to perfect City by the Sea, becoming depressed in the process and calling it the "low-point" of his career, only to muster this vapid schmaltz. The fact that the film is apparently based on true events is the only thing that saved it from becoming one big cliche. It's not a terrible film, I never wanted to turn it off, but the amount of talent involved left me feeling jilted.

(nl) wrote: Gave this a re-watch in honor of the Criterion Blu-ray release - man, it's such a great film.A fascinating bio of a legendarily eccentric misanthrope, Zwigoff's film follows Crumb as he prepares to leave the US for a new life in France. He visits his family and a few ex-girlfriends and wives who fill in history on the man, along with extensive interviews in which he showcases his work as well as the various inspirations and tragedies behind it.Highly recommended.
