What are people saying?

  • FISCHER's rating of the film I as in Icarus

    Faisant implicitement référence à l'assassinat de John Kennedy, le film reste un sympathique thriller politique avec ses navrantes limites structurelles. Une excellente scène de conditionnement de l'individu face à l'Autorité, ainsi que les toutes premières scènes liées à l'attentat, sont fort réussies...
