Nice work gathering the footage
5 October 2020 | by ersbelSee all my reviews

Overall the documentary is weak. But it does a nice job gathering all the footage. Instead of digging in YouTube, one has many of the videos in here.

The voice over is bad. It lacks the insides needed by someone who is not familiar with the episode. It also spells too much for someone who is.

I see it was made back in 1992. So there was no clear direction in which the governmental machine was going, hence the footage is rather aimless. I'm pretty sure that the same production team would give a far different edit in 2022.

So I will give the documentary extra stars. But the value rests with the tapes and not the people who have curated the documentary. In 2020 it's a nice thing to see Anarchy existed in the 20th century. A couple of decades later, in *Bucharest, Where Are You?* one can see the repressive apparatus is functional and nothing like 1989 could happen, the republican slaves unwilling to fight have been replaced with professional thugs that will not hesitate to kill in order to pay their mortgage.
