What I’m watching
Right now on the television is Sergei Eisenstein's 1927 silent movie October - stirring, great art but celebrating the Communists. (Like what Leni Riefenstahl was to the Nazis?) Disturbing. If I'd been in Russia in 1917 I would have supported the February revolution as a matter of survival (and a reaction to an immoral war) but not the October one.
