Brilliant archival footage set against a historical documentary with no continuity !
A stunning collection of archival footage of Trotsky, Lenin, Stalin and almost ever major character in Soviet political history in the past 100 years. Unfortunately, by the second episode this rambling account of Cazrist Russia, the early Bolshevik Revolution and Stalin's dictatorial role as a leader becomes so confusing no one can keep it straight. This documentary jumps between Stalin's unlikely youth as a thug, bank robber and revolutionary to his fascination with Lenin, Trotsky and the first Bolsheviks . It eventually encompasses his absolute authoritarian control over all other forms of Socialism and Communism. It's a shame the editor's jumped backwards and forwards so often we are not sure who actually killed Lenin or Trotsky.
