Lets Study Cinema History Comrade 05/05/2020 (Tue) 08:51:47 No. 1499
Quote from the Soviet film "The Great Citizen" (1937): "Oh, twenty years after a GOOD WAR, get out and take a look at the Soviet Union - composed of lets say thirty or forty republics." On January 1, 1937 as part of the so-called USSR there were only 11 republics, implying that that USSR has planned to annex at least 20 European states during WW2. Communist propaganda also portrayed total war as something "good". After the war the propaganda has drastically changed, now claiming that USSR is the "Bastion of Peace" (СССР оплот МИРА). But there is a catch, since in Russian language both "peace" and "world" have the same word "mir" (МИР). So when a Russian says "we need mir", he can mean botch "we need peace" and "we need the whole world".

In a sense for Russians peace wont happen until they enslave the whole world. These swastika branding FSB operatives dont even hide it.
What the fuck does this has to do with cinema history?
>>1499 Nikita, please take your meds
>>1499 I've been meaning to look more into the history of Russian and Japanese cinema. Does anyone have reading recommendations on Sergei Eisenstein or Edogawa Ranpo?
>>2753 >I've been meaning to look more into the history of Russian and Japanese cinema >reading recommendations Study their movies and read what they wrote themself. Eisenstein wrote tons of theory. Eisenstein is just a small fish in a big pound of revolutionary filmakers at the time. But you need a bit of general cinematic culture tho, to say the least
