Z 1969 127 PG 3.5 out of 5 ducks
A liberal politician is killed in an attack during a peace demonstration. The cops and military both try to cover up their role in failing to hold back the demonstration's crowds, hoping to pin the entire event on Yago and Vago, two men charged with the guy's death, calling it an accident (but a death none the less, so it's a manslaughter charge). His wife, Helene, has a few odd flashbacks and whatnot of their life with their son and such. A young reporter snoops around, telling Helene her husband's life was threatened; she sends him off. Vago is going to the police, and he's beaten in a drive-by incident; the chief of police visits Vago in hospital and tells him he fell -- he didn't see anything in the crowd, either. The reporter publishes Vago's point of view, and the judge conducting the inquest keeps finding witnesses whose all tell apparently prearranged stories. The judge ends up having the evidence to indict the police chief and his four subordinates. In the end, we learn Yago and Vago, and the minor players (all hired by the police chief) did prison time, a number of witnesses died of suspicious circumstances, the chief and his three officers were dealt with administratively. The reporter was charged with revealing government documents, and the political cause that carries on the politicians view is noted as "Z", ancient Greek for 'he lives on.' Moving film reel
