Once Were Warriors (Lee Tamahori – 1994) A

After Henry and now this, I really need to see a good comedy. This really was a brilliant and very powerful movie about household violence, alcoholism and the ruthless cycle it generates. It is filled with deeply human characters (some much more flawed than others) that we care about. The performances, especially by the actors playing the lead husband and wife are nothing short of superb, but honestly everyone seems to be a perfect actor for the job here.
