Hungary Film

Again, expanded and carried over from a previous, now locked, post

  1. Gloomy Sunday – WWII / Cold War
  2. Kontroll – Social Commentary
  3. Freedom's Fury – Cold War Documentary
  4. Budapest Retro – Cold War Documentary
  5. The Journey – Cold War Historical Story (1959, Yul Brynner, Deborah Kerr)
  6. Budapest to Gettysburg – is a riveting tale of love, hate, war and freedom - a journey from terror to hope. The past and present collide as a world-renowned historian confronts a history he has refused to study: his own. Gabor Boritt is an expert on Abraham Lincoln and the American Civil War. Fifty years after fleeing a continent ravaged by the terror of Hitler and Stalin, Gabor reluctantly returns to his native Budapest. Urged by his son, he faces the harsh history of his Jewish-Hungarian childhood: the Nazi invasion, the Holocaust, Allied bombing raids, Soviet tyranny, the 1956 Revolution and his escape to America. From the streets of Budapest to the fields of Gettysburg, Gabor discovers the intimate and epic history that transformed him into a great scholar of Lincoln, the Civil War and American democracy.

Thanks for the suggestions. I watched Gloomy Sunday this past weekend and really liked it. I didn't realize it until halfway through the song at the end that Sarah McLachlan did a cover of this song.

Haha yeah. I wanted to rent one of the other ones (I forgot which one), but it wasn't on Netflix.
