"The Square", great documentary on Egyptian Revolution (Netflix)

I saw this the other day and it was pretty powerful. Highly recommended. This is Netflix's first Oscar nomination. :)

Revolution at its finest

Man, was this an amazing movie. Everything about it was well done. I cannot stress enough how dedicated some of these people were to freedom.

Might accompany the documentary well.

Thanks for the info.

I gave up Netflix a while ago. I'm considering getting it back. Thanks.

He's the man.
