Battle in Seattle (2007, Martin Henderson, Michelle Rodriguez)
This is an actual movie about the 1999 WTO protests where activists shut down much of the city and seriously disrupted the imperialist’s gathering. I had low expectations for this movie and criticism of it from actual participants is loud and clear. But, while it tries to show several sides, it is clearly a sympathetic portrayal of the activist left. The police brutality depicted is intense and infuriating. This is a must see.
