An astounding performance by Sidney Rittenburg as he describes his loving and horrific 35 year relationship with Communist China.

Captivating, heartfelt and gripping. It should be a requirement for every young American to watch this documentary.

This aptly titled documentary draws upon the sharp memory and deep insights of a rueful nonagenarian. It might be of most interest to political people. If that describes you, DO NOT MISS IT.

It's a remarkable story, even if "The Revolutionary," a no-frills documentary drawn from five years of interviews, isn't much of a movie.

documents the most dramatic moments in China's revolution under Mao Zedong from the perspective of a close insider who was also a westerner and outsider... a tale of ideological fervour and subsequent disillusion

Artistically anemic documentary provides a thrillingly unique viewpoint on the disillusion and terror of the 20th century's most tragic revolution.
