The Mill: one gem in a ton of overburden,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Country Matters (DVD)
The Mill is the one gem in the collection, and what a rare gem it is. One hour of movie-making brilliance.
A rough promise carefully sifted from the human sands; separated; graded; properly dopped; beautifully faceted, polished and set.
It is one of the most psychologically brutal pieces ever filmed. Its immediate after-taste left me ashamed of my culture, gender and biological family. This gustatory sensation lingers still, after one viewing and the lapse of some 36+ years.
