What are people saying?

  • El Biffo's rating of the film Rosa Luxemburg

    Choppy direction, rather disappointing. I hate to think that this woman could have been as humorless as this film. My favorite parts were the scenes with her cat. I liked the cat. Recommended for those who have an infinite appetite for very dry Socialist polemic, which is most of what this film consists of: Socialist polemic which isn't half as entertaining as a Bernie Sanders speech.
