Amazing depiction of revolution in the movie REDSSubmitted by Leo Rizon on Sun, 11/27/2011 - 15:15
Can't believe it took me this long to finally see this film, but it was probably because I didn't trust Warren Beatty, though I've adored many of his films over the years. This is a tour de force and my East German wife agrees it is a very accurate portrayal of the forces at work. Granted, they wanted to become communist and fortunately failed, but the whole business of trying to bring about a broad change for the benefit of the masses is a great challenge and depicted very very well here in this film. In the end this is a story about trying to subvert the establishment PTB in favor of the common person.
