How the sacrifices of the proletariat are rewarded in Russia today
With ‘Shrek the Third,’ a movie with a lowly score of 42% on Rotten Tomatoes and described by critics as lacking ‘heart, charm, and wit.’
I spotted this banner hanging on the outside of a cinema in Moscow on a visit back in 2007.
I was in town for the May Day parade, something I’d always wanted to see ever since I saw it on the news when I was growing up at the height of the Cold War.
I loved the juxtaposition between the heroic Soviet-era mosaic and the garish Hollywood poster.
Certainly a change of pace from ‘Battleship Potemkin’.
Lenin must be turning in his mausoleum!
