The Zone of Interest and an Oscar Speech

 First, a confession: I was appreciative but not a huge fan of The Zone of Interest . Most of the reasons that I was underwhelmed were unfair to its artistic intent. I partly was just not in the mood for a very slow, somewhat dull, film with terrible music. But those things were all intentional. And the fact that I love the director's heart for the film was demonstrated by the Oscar speech. A second confession: I am really only writing this review to draw your attention to Naomi Klein's excellent and potent reflection on the movie and Glazer's speech (and get around FB's blocking of news articles...). So good. Please, please read this. And share this. After reading this, my respect for the film was much increased.
