'Agora' Review By Julian Left
Love, Redemption, Cruelty and Savageness - All In Agora
The acting in the movie was handled well and on top of that the cinematography was splendid. The movie was cut and edited very well and the score was very well inserted. Another good thing is that this was not slow-paced and it raised many questions. The story itself is accurate so don't worry for "fake-history" in here. (if I think about it... which is accurate and which is not?)
I must admin I'm into this kind of movies, historical and religious so this one made a clear statement in my eyes that good and powerful movies still can be done. The problem with this movie is that it is very disturbing and opens discussions about faith and christianity and since many of us are christians and not just christians but more like "ignorant and blind christians", many will reject the idea of this movie.
Anyway I strongly advise people to take this film in consideration because it is a strong movie.
Art Direction: 8,5/10.
