April 24, 2009 - Boston.com - Ty Burr, Globe Staff

If Costa-Gavras' "Z" wasn't the first political docudrama, it definitely felt like it in 1969. A thriller based on tumultuous, barely-disguised events in early 1960s Greece, the film galvanized audiences worldwide when it was released, amassing an unprecedented five Oscar nominations (including best picture; it won the foreign language and editing awards), and reframing the ways international events and populist fervor could be turned into commercial cinema. It was a date movie that sent you out into the streets, fists upraised.
