What are people saying?

  • Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film The Errors of Youth

    Restless young man wanders from place to place in order to "experience life." The film portrays late '70s USSR as bleak landscape: no one even pays lip service to the ideology anymore. No portraits of Lenin and the words "working class" are only spat sarcastically by thieves. Marx scrapped Christ, time scrapped Marx, there's not much left to go on. Desperation nips his heels, everywhere's just another trap.
