Does he relate the purges by "Uncle Joe" Stalin? I'm sure Joe was a great guy, but the USSR made millions of people miserable, if not dead. Does the picture capture that?

What a tired old fart of a comment! Maybe the DVD version can have extras of all the pain and suffering you need to make a film you have not seen seem more real or better. You are a tired old man!
