Le jeune Karl Marx

Raoul Peck France, 2017

Tobias Schönrock's rating of the film The Young Karl Marx

Better than its reputation. Still feels a little bit cheesy at some point and maybe the wrong form for what it tries to say, but it has a concern that goes beyond telling a life story or showing some revolutionary romanticism. Analysis of reality and the postulation of a profound theory afterwards comes before action. Quite interesting as well in the depiction of the infighting within the leftist philosophic circles.
