    I remember a scene of Kerensky looking a bit deranged and reaching for the Czar's crown at the Kremlin.

    How many times we've seen that since.

    And then theres Tarkoskvy, Aah.

    A great Soviet war movie is 'Come and See' I think
    Well if you start off with the cream, where you gonna go after that?

    'Come and See' remains, I think, the only physically shocking movie I ever saw in my life. I mean you knew it all from books etc - but that is one heavy, heavy trip!

    I doubt Rashers has ever seen it - he'd rate it as fantasy, which he reckons he's not into.

    It's from Belarus, isn't it?

    The Germans prior to Hitler coming to power where a tremendously creative people. Now they are neurotic wrecks living in a glided cage. Whatever they are, they are not well adjusted.

    Having spent two long stints of my working life in Germany I have to say, that is a complete load of rubbish.

    You need to travel more.

    Eh, it's a film, so obviously it is fantasy.

    It's also a 1985 Soviet 'Patriotic war' film bent on excusing the Soviets and Allies of atrocities and blaming everything on the Germans.

    Prime holocaust industry pap.

    There's a lesson there for you Tadhg - the old one about how it's better to say nothing, and have people claim you're a fool, than to open your mouth and prove their case for them.

    I would have thought that would have particular relevance to your silly self.
