So it is getting really late and I have to get up at six tomorrow. I am yawning and pretty much unhinging my jaw like a snake trying to stay up to write this. This might not be thorough or well thought out but deal with it!
How many Soviet Union propaganda movies have we watched? I feel like I have seen too many. I watched half of this movie before watching Live Free or Die Hard and then I watched the second half. I have to say, this one wasn't as exciting. It felt like we went back a few years. It was silent and two hours long. It pretty much just recorded some shit happening to proletariats in Ukraine. Thrilling...
Maybe I shouldn't have watched this when I was so tired and my constant yawns were obscuring my vision. I definitely thought this was a major snore. I probably got spoiled from our brief talkie phase.
Film has been voted one of the ten greatest movies of all time at Brussels. And that, boys and girls, is the definition of the word pretentious.
Censored by Soviets.
Full movie is not available on YouTube. It is not worth a purchase. Here is a clip:
