to accept that the Dictatorship of the Proletariat was simply Dictatorship over the Proletariat. And this despite Emma Goldman repeatedly pointing it out. Mind, there are many left wingers even today, who, despite the reams of evidence refuse to see how the Bolsheviks stole the revolution. Power corrupts, apparently. |
Great film though. Beatty got an Oscar for best director while Keaton got one for best supporting actress. Not that Oscars prove anything, mind.
