    I suggest taking a quick peak at the history of the French resistance and the Vichy government before watching Army of Shadows. I once had to explain that history after someone saw and disliked the film and they immediately liked it much much more after being given the background info. They now love it.

    I just finished watching All About Eve a few days again its pretty good. Especially Anne Baxter you’ll also noticed a lot of Hitchcock actors in there.
