I will give a different perspective on this film because just peruse any of the reviews on here and you will see just how affective bourgeois, anti-communist propaganda has been on the masses for the last 50 years, though this film stumbles at the end and reinforces the lies. However, a film like this surfaces a really important contradiction surrounding the standard narrative on Stalin and the USSR which has been propped up by the status quo, (right wing) reactionaries…
