Repression is the rule of the day in this film that skewers Greek governance of the 1960s. Z, a leftist rabble rouser, is killed in what appears to be a traffic accident. But given the political climate, the death of such a prominent activist raises troubling questions. Though it's too late to save Z's life, a postmortem examination suggests that the ruling party was behind his death. As the facts leak out, those who tell the truth pay the price for their honesty.Z featuring Yves Montand and Irene Papas is streaming with subscription on The Criterion Channel, available for rent or purchase on iTunes, and available for rent or purchase on Prime Video. It's a crime and drama movie with a very high Rotten Tomatoes (critics) score of 93% and a high IMDb audience rating of 8.3 (21,530 votes).
