    I have just watched Reds (1981) and I’m lowkey insterested in watching more films with the same subject theme. Does anyone have recommendations?

    I personally recommend the one I’ve watched (Reds), especially if you’re interested in The Russian Revolution. It was up to the 12 Academy Awards winning three: Director, Actress in a Supporting Role and Cinematography.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    If anybody is interested in communism in film, isn’t drowning in Western propaganda, and willing to engage with pro-communism ideas, Sergei Eisenstein is of course your best bet as a start. Not only did he compose some of the most beautiful pieces of all time, but he was an experimenter and innovator of the highest calibre.

    A definitely bad place to start, instead, but a great place to end is Chris Marker’s extraordinary documentary Le fond de l’air est rouge. It’s not exclusively on communism, but it presents a Marxist point of view on some of the most important turning points of the past century, such as what happened in France (and elsewhere) in ’68. Marx’ ideas are still central to understand the world we currently live in, even if you decide to adopt a neoliberal position on things.

    I know it’s tv, but The Americans made me more interested in stories connected to this very topic.

    Also, possibly writing too!

    Reds is the only mainstream one that doesn’t feel propagandistic.
