Dyslexics of the World, Untie!
15 May 2011 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

The montage film, put together to celebrate the eleventh anniversary of the October Revolution and the progress made in Russia -- although Russia is never mentioned in the titles, only Socialism -- is a carefully edited series of clips intended to show all the wonderful things that the Soviet Union had produced in the first ten years of its triumph -- although at least a couple of the clips seem to date to 1896 actualities on steelmaking in France, and one dramatic moving crane shot is lifted from the series that Billy Bitzer shot at the Westinghouse Plant in 1905.

I also think that the ending is a bit padded and slow; I would have cut it a couple of minutes earlier to finish on a high point with plenty of camera movement. I suspect that coming in at less than fifty minutes would have gotten someone upset. This was, after all, a feature.
