Better dead than Red? Not according to this four-disc set of Soviet propaganda films, an engrossing compilation of animated indoctrination spanning six decades of Russian history, from the October Revolution and the creation of the Soviet Union in the 1920s to the era of "perestroika" in the 1980s. These 41 films encourage good workers to sneer at the "American Imperialists" of the Cold War era; lampoon Hitler and other "Fascist Barbarians" who launched World War II; decry the "Capitalist Sharks" that make up the bourgeoisie; and look "Onward to the Shining Future: Communism." 6 hrs. total. Standard; Soundtrack: Russian; Soundtrack: English. In Russian with English subtitles.
