Lee and Daniel look at Gillo Pontecorvo's provocative film from 1966, "The Battle of Algiers". Imperialism, colonialism, racism, torture, terrorist tactics, and other light-hearted topics are touched upon. Yeah, this one gets political and depressing at times. The hosts also ponder how they'd want to be executed if given the choice. What the hosts have watched and a listener's comment are also covered.
