This Soviet TV series is probably the best TV show ever made. It is pure кино and deeply anti-fascist, anti-imperialist, and anti-USA. It's about a Soviet spy sabotaging peace talks between the OSS and Himmler (to allow the USA and Nazi Germany to team up on the USSR). It was made at the request of the head of the KGB. The tension and drama in this show is outstanding!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZhgXs_iFRs&list=PLHiAMOiVIvsD2u8g0RLwvdRScEe9yiUr5&index=2&t=0s

Quote from the Soviet film "The Great Citizen" (1937):
"Oh, twenty years after a GOOD WAR, get out and take a look at the Soviet Union - composed of lets say thirty or forty republics."

On January 1, 1937 as part of the so-called USSR there were only 11 republics, implying that that USSR has planned to annex at least 20 European states during WW2. Communist propaganda also portrayed total war as a noble fight for internationalism.

After the war the propaganda has drastically changed, now claiming that USSR is the "Bastion of Peace" (СССР оплот МИРА). But there is a catch, since in Russian language both "peace" and "world" have the same word "mir" (МИР). So when a Russian says "we need mir", he can mean botch "we need peace" and "we need the whole world".

The Soviet movie itself:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXQo1o4RrpI

Внешнеполитическая пропаганда ХХ века исключительно пацифична. У всех. У СССР, США, 3 Рейха. Советская пропаганда, например, строилась над "вершковом пацифизме". Суть:

Пусть помнит враг, укрывшийся в засаде:
Мы начеку, мы за врагом следим.

So many fabulous and easily maintained buildings have been demolished because of short-sightedness. We shouldn't be vandals of architecture. We should preserve the Penn stations and the Russian cathedrals of the world, and not just demolish our monuments.

We should rebuild some of them as well. People don't just have utilitarian needs and need a "spiritual" or imaginative side which is opposed to efficiency but which startles you.

So is Senegal an "M-L" country in the same sense that Mozambique and Angola are? (i.e. totally revisionist and authoritarian Capitalists like most African countries anyway)
Being that they're actually willing to do token things like work with Based Koreans.

Anyway, I think the statue is a fine piece of socialist realism, but you shouldn't be building pretty statues when your country suffers from severe underdevelopment and wealth inequality.
Out of 189 indexed countries, Senegal ranks 166 for human development thus putting it in the lowest tier.
IMF colonial horseshit of course keeps them down in many ways, but leadership that builds a nice fucking statue (that I'm sure won't be maintained) over literally anything else is shooting yourself in the foot.

Despite being very click-bait brutalism the spomenik monuments to commemorate victims of fascism are legit siq. They were mostly locally commissioned from living yugoslavian/baltic artists and I think did a good job in reimagining what a "war monument" looks like but still being relatable and striking.

So many classical/ western culture concern-trolls forget that there are a lot of "classic" structures/ architecture that are just nostalgic fakes - confederate statues, neo-classical architecture, entire "medieval" towns built for the Worlds Fair etc

No, but the DPRK has good relations with many African countries whether or not those countries are ML since they supported anti-colonialist struggles across Africa. Also Angola and Mozambique are officially socdem since the 90s.

Before anyone says it
Yes
Obviously most horror films from the 80s were shit, as with most movies in any decade

However, I do have to say that the 80s seem like the horror decade, the decade that set most of the new trends for horror and introduced the most classics, while, IMO the 2010s were the second best decade for horror, they're still far-outstripped by the 80s, why?

>Forced Entry is a 1973 adult horror film written and directed by Shaun Costello under the pseudonym Helmuth Richler. It stars Harry Reems (credited as Tim Long) as an unnamed and psychotic Vietnam War veteran who sexually assaults and kills women who stop at the filling station where he works as an attendant. Called "one of the most disturbing and unpleasant porn features ever made," the film utilizes actual footage of the war, predominantly in the rape and murder sequences.[1]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forced_Entry_(1973_film)
>Noting the film is "the first film to show a disturbed war vet coming home from Vietnam," Ed Demko calls the film "one of the more important and relevant films to ever come out of that age of pornography. It’s a film that really transcends the time that it was made and might even be more important now than the age it was made. Sure there’s a ton of nasty sexual activity in the film but the subject matter and what the movie is actually saying goes way beyond that."[4]
>In "Forced Entry: Serial Killer Pornography as Patriarchical Paradox", scholar Robert Cettl assesses the film's role as pivotal in the history of American serial killer films and discusses its subversion of American patriarchy "by highlighting a paradox in relation to hegemonic masculinity" and how the director turns pornography "into self-conscious political discourse", arguing the film critiques patriarchical reaction to second-wave feminism (represented by the independently-living female victims) as grounded in war-mongering (rape-murder scenes interspersed with footage from the Vietnam War) and ultimately doomed to self-implosion (the killer's suicide).[5]

Sounds interesting. I might give it a listen.

Both have been talked about and recommended on /leftypol/ a ton, but:
Moderate Rebels – Good anti-imperialist pod by the Grayzone guys
Cumtown – Funny (Stav is fat, gay and a pedophile)

Does anyone know of any good film podcasts that aren't just people talking about the big, new, English language releases and the same old, 80s, cult b-movies? I want something that has a bit more variety with some foreign films and films from the 60s and earlier.

All he's doing is filming their building. But it's funny as hell to see these industrial workers panic and trying to intimidate the camera man, and then summon a boss, and finally cops. At one point they even try to block his view into the building by getting employees to stand around blocking the view with a piece of cardboard.

It really drives home how so many of these bosses act like mafia bosses that have to protect their pride by stopping the camera man.
