Hingeing its narrative on a tragic nightclub fire in Bucharest in 2015, Collective establishes itself as an exposé of malpractice and the mistreatment of the fire’s victims, before remarkably unfurling in real time, shadowing journalists, activists, whistleblowers and survivors in their quest for justice. Astutely observing the integrity of these players whilst exposing the immorality of bureaucratic corruption, the film implicates the Romanian health department, government and mafia, whilst ominously foreshadowing the rise of the right wing. Riveting, harrowing and brutally realised, Collective is investigative documentary at its finest and one of the best non-fiction films of 2019. RG
