It's a rare treat to get the opportunity to see Gillo Pontecorvo's masterpiece work, so take advantage. You have 1 week - until next week Thursday to do so.
I've actually never seen it on the big screen, so you can guarantee that I will see it, likely sometime this weekend.
The screening is in celebration of Algeria's 50th year of independence from French rule, after a successful 8-year rebellion against the French - a period that's realistically and rivetingly documented in The Battle Of Algiers.
For the rest of you not in NYC, as previously noted, you can pick up the Criterion Blu-ray release, which finally made it to retailers last August.
