Sergei Bondarchuk's (War and Peace) film of Ten Days that Shook the World, about the October Revolution in 1917, depicts, from the point of the view of two foreign journalists in Petrograd, the events which would shape Russia for the 20th century. The film has a dryness to it which may bore viewers (it certainly bored me a little on first viewing) but give it your patience - this is a very well crafted and impartial look at the revolution, and it has more power than the lackeys to audience taste at Hollywood would ever fit into a motion picture. It's not available on VHS or DVD, so scour the rental world for a copy - it's where I got mine.
