Defiance, Edward Zwick (2008)

This is a movie of the story of the Bielski partisans. It’s not a great movie, but it’s a great story. You can’t eat popcorn while you watch Shoah, but you can eat popcorn while you watch this. I feel kind of sick to my stomach saying that. I don’t like Holocaust movies, generally speaking, since I don’t like texts that purport to represent the un-representable. But this isn’t really a Holocaust movie. That said, I didn’t really like it, either.
