Lynne Ramsay Jr.,
Peter Watkins tells the story of the short lived revolt of the people in Hungary against the Soviet backed regime that toppled their democratically elected goverment. Watkins uses his trademark faux documentary style as he follows the people's revolt from it's beginning to it's tragic end. Watkins uses Eisenstein's style of filmmaking along with his own to create a very unique and interesting short film. A sign of greater things to come.
Very educational and highly recommended.
