Propaganda films, such as I am Cuba, Triumph of the Will and Battleship Potemkin are fascinating, stirring and beautiful, but I could no more appreciate watching the gleeful looting and desecration of an Orthodox church as I could a well shot execution of a priest in the basement of Lubyanka. I definitely would watch other films by this artist, but probably earlier ones, before Stalin had made his country into a real life horror show.
