    Beatty starred, produced, wrote & won an Academy Award for directing this intimate, political epic. Beatty play John Reed, the American communist buried in the Kremlin, other Oscar-nominated performances include Keaton as feminist Louise Bryant & Nicholson as author Eugene O'Neill; Stapleton won the Best Supporting Actress award as anarchist Emma Goldman. Beatty, ending Hollywood's fear of leftist politics, does a great job of showing the lives of political radicals in the early 20th Century at home & during the unruly years of the Russian Revolution. A grand film about an undervalued man in American history. I give it a 4.5/5.

  • Reds, the epic just before the fall

    When Reds was released in 1981, it was hard to imagine the Soviet Union was only 10 years from collapse. It had been labeled an epic at that time, and many thought it was robbed when Chariots of Fire instead won the best picture Oscar. If for nothing else, Reds is a valuable historical document because of the testimony of the witnesses throughout the production. It is a reminder of how memory can either remain accurate over time, or become changed as a result of one's life's experiences. It is a romantic view of the Russian Revolution; the purges, the corrupt planning and war are still in the future. It is difficult to NOT feel that there was some hope at this point in history, and Warren Beatty captures this all very well.

  • REDS still holds up

    Warren Beatty's REDS holds up very nicely, supported by a compelling dramatic conceit of actual witnesses to the Reed-Bryant dyad against the unfolding mise en scene. The last shot of a deceased Jack w/ Louise in mourning over his body (shot through a door ajar) reminded me of Bob Fosse's self-projecting mea culpa ALL THAT JAZZ--Beatty was saying (in effect) now I CAN die because I have fashioned my masterwork. O yes and to Mary--Keaton's singing was good enough for what was expected.

  • Thank You For Reds!!(new to site)
