"Tak zhit nelzya" (meaning "You Can't Live Like That") is a documentary comparing and contrasting the United States and Soviet Union. We see people's bleak existences in the USSR along with New York ghettos; the Soviet documentary maker is the only white person in the ghetto! At one point, the documentary maker comes across a woman protesting the usage of fur for clothes, and he assumes that she's getting paid to do it (in the USSR, they assumed that Americans only do things for money). At one point, we even get to hear Glenn Miller's "In the Mood" to introduce the USA! Anyway, it's not the greatest documentary ever made, but I recommend it as a look at the differences - and occasional similarities
between the superpowers.
