    The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceau?escu (Autobiografia lu Nicolae Ceau?escu)

    This unique compilation film was one of the most buzzed-about entries in the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. The 25-year reign of the infamous Romanian dictator is presented entirely through the distorted lens of propaganda and official footage—a gaudy but hollow pageant of speeches, parades, photo ops, and state visits that is by turns fascinating, chilling, and darkly humorous. Without narration, but with canny editing and sound design, director Ujica constructs a self-styled "autobiography" in which the unreliability of the "narrator" becomes increasingly apparent, and the offstage presence of suppressed history increasingly undeniable.
