Cradle Will Rock (US, 1999)

American politics can be despairing (unless you’re a right wing ideologue) but films like this show there is hope. The right wing idea of the Land of the Free is a joke (it’s a myth for capitalists to exploit) and Robbins’ film brilliantly evokes the tensions engendered during the Great Depression by yoking an all-star cast to an all-big name historical characters narrative.

Socialist, also, in its ensemble way of telling the story. Genius. (DVD, 2)
