And finally, here is the film that tops our list of "Pirate Cinema's Top 3 
Hollywood Movies of the 1990s" (*). Our winner was made by a director who, just 
on the heels of what already seemed like the perfect underdog candidate for a 
contest like this, managed to outdo himself once again. This is a movie about 
fascism, and if only one out of a hundred people who went to see Schindler's 
List would have watched this one instead, the world would be a better place. 
The genre is vaguely science-fiction, but the setting is fully contemporary. 
It's a film that shows how teenagers become nazis, it turns from high-school 
romance into global war drama in a matter of minutes, and what makes it such an 
outlier, and a visionary piece of cinema, is that it inverts not only the 
ethics, but also the core ideological function of Hollywood: It refuses to 
prove that fun is a Stahlbad, and instead demonstrates that a Stahlbad is fun. 
Sadly, this film has been less influential than it should have been -- we can 
only think of an art magazine that is named after it. There is also a sequel, 
and we have taken a look at it (so that you don't have to, and you shouldn't).

(*) excluding the usual suspects: nothing by Martin Scorsese or David Lynch,
    obviously no Quentin Tarantino, and no film we have ever screened before,
    which rules out Heat, Point Break, Showgirls, Bound and Twelve Monkeys.
