Stirring portrait of courageous individuals and what participating in the USCP meant in their lives
28 February 2000 | by (West LA, USA) – See all my reviews

Seeing Red is a well rendered portrait of individuals who were members of the US Communist Party. The subjects are still passionate about their involvement and why they left the party, or chose to continue in it after Kruschev's (sp) disclosure of Stalin's reign. These people embody some of the noblest qualities we can aspire to. Thank you to Julia Reichert and partner for giving light to a much maligned and misunderstood group. The film reflects their thorough research and amazing finds. The stock footage is hilarious and horrible. There is a lot of heart in this film.
