This movie tells the story of the last battle that has been fought with hopes of forming a Utopian society... a libertarian communist society based on anarchy. Everyone is equal. Everyone is a soldier. There are no rankings, everyone fights as an equal. Even men and women are seen as equals. In times when we are beginning to see the failings of a capitalist society, this movie is an inspiration to show that it is possible to form a collective society in which everyone is free and equal. It makes you contemplate the argument of are you really free in a democratic society? This movie takes a particularly feminist perspective, following the association of free women, a branch of the revolution in which the women were just as devoted to the cause as the men, and expect to be treated equal, even if it means they will fight and die. This movie should be an inspiration to us all as it becomes obvious that a liberal capitalist life is unsustainable..it is a must see, especially if you enjoy political movies. 8.5 out of 10.
**If you like this movie check out Salt of the Earth, about the strikes at the zincs mines in new Mexico by Mexican workers...also a must see!**
