Movie Review by Movie Addict
June 2nd, 2009

I know that I am supposed to like this film. Unfortunately, as it is almost strictly for the political converts, I didn't.

It is basically a collection of unused film footage from the late 60s and early 70s, showing significant moments in the leftist revolution, and how they dropped the ball, i.e. a "grin" without a cat. Yawn! Watching home movies of a leftist movement that compromised itself out of existence is not very satisfying.

Film students may find appreciation of this work, but after watching Marker's most famous creation, "La Jetée", I expected more.

Despite the fact that it was reworked, it just didn't measure up to my expectations.
