Warren Beatty's award winning epic mixes drama and interviews with major social radicals of the period. "Reds" tells the story of the love affair between activists Louise Bryant and John Reed. Set against the backdrop of the tumultuous start of the twentieth century, the two journalists' on-again off-again romance is punctuated by the outbreak of WWI and the Bolshevik Revolution. Louise's assignment in France at the outbreak of the war puts an end to their affair. John Reed's subsequent trip to Russia, and his involvement with the Communist party, rekindles their relationship. When Louise arrives in Petrograd, she finds herself swept up in the euphoria of the Revolution. Reed, however, eventually becomes disillusioned with Communism when he sees his words and intentions augmented and controlled by the growing Soviet propaganda machine.

Fresh: Reds is an extremely fine film.
Fresh: As for Beatty, Reds is his bravura turn.
Fresh: Reds is finally just an appealingly conventional epic movie-star romance with radical trimmings, but it contains several sharper elements that suggest the colorful period it seeks to recreate.
This is one of my favorite movies of all time!!!!

Greatest Epic of All Time
I first heard of this movie because my History Teacher suggested I do an "Extra Credit" project in where I had to analyze the movie and present it to the class. So I looked it up and I was like "This is so long, I don't want to do this it looks boring". So I started watching the movie and found it intriguing, interesting and most importantly: great. This long movie that seems to be boring turns out to be as historically accurate as they get, with the added bonus of being a great story. This movie was the last movie to be nominated for the four acting awards (at the Academy Awards). Watch it, and you will be amazed, Guaranteed.
