Poorly scripted Communist propaganda
5 February 2007 | by (Berkeley, CA) – See all my reviews

Strachy is a made-for-TV movie from the 70's that's just tailor made Communist propaganda. A young woman is working at a struggling theater. She's poor and her mother is barely able to raise all the younger brothers and sisters. There's a lot of sabotage in the theater among the performers who are trying to get ahead. Every character in the movie is hopelessly selfish. They struggle through hard times financially, but then when they get a windfall, they forget about everyone around them and splurge it. The father does not care about his family and pinches every cent he can from them. The daughter refuses to leave the theater and get a "real job" where she'd earn money to support her family. The movie basically consists of all these short events that are completely disconnected and just serve to undermine those unrealistic bourgeois dreams. Some propaganda films are still entertaining, but this one never goes anywhere beyond criticizing its characters for all their illogical selfishness and helplessness.
