10 Soviet Films You Should Definitely Watch
Like it or not, all media has some form of implicit bias whether it be intentional, subconscious or just cultural. Hollywood movies present a Western ideal of the world even if that world is a sci-fi masterpiece with seemingly nothing to do with the reality. It's all there.
Also, like it or not, Communism was a major social/political/economic school of thought in the 20th century (and still is in some parts of the world) and, like America with capitalism, the Soviet Union was trying to further these ideals through media including film. Regardless of the messages within them, however, that does not mean they did not produce some stunning pieces of art.
Many in the West have not seen these Soviet films due to the warring ideologies of America and Russia at the time. However, with the collapse of the Soviet Union and the warming of relations between the two superpowers these movies are now available to see and we recommend these ones should you be able to find them.
