From the director of The Battle Of Algiers, Gillo Pontecorvo, Burn! explores colonialism and insurrection. Marlon Brando gives an impressive performance as 19th century English mercenary and agent provocateur Sir William Walker sent to a Caribbean island run by the Portuguese, and manages by Machiavellian manipulations to engineer a slave revolt that gives the British what they want power and money. Burn! glows with the fires of Pontecorvos unique filmmaking genius and Brandos portrayal of a man who is both gentleman and scoundrel, revolutionary and colonialist ranks amongst his best performances. Ennio Morricones haunting music underscores a very powerful story.
