  1. Ralph,

    Have you even seen this film?

    La Commune
    (La Commune (Paris, 1871))
    2000 NR 345 minutes

    "Director Peter Watkins tells the story of the historic Paris Commune of 1871, whose members formed a spontaneous revolutionary government to challenge the established order during the Franco-Prussian War. The docudrama re-creates the events, inserting dueling modern-day camera crews to tell both sides of this important moment in history, one following the revolutionary movement, the other bowing to the official party version."
