Die Lebensgeschichte des amerikanischen Revolutionärs und Journalisten John Reed ("Zehn Tage, die die Welt erschütterten"), der, vom Beispiel der russischen Revolution angeregt, für soziale Gerechtigkeit kämpfte, aber in der UdSSR selbst das schrittweise Scheitern seiner Ideale mitansehen mußte. Reed starb 33-jährig in Moskau und wurde an der Kreml-Mauer bestattet. Das aufwändige Epos verbindet die Geschichte der kommunistischen Bewegung in den USA mit der melodramatischen Love-Story zwischen dem Helden und der schönen Louise Bryant. Auf einer zusätzlichen dokumentarischen Ebene reflektiert der Film das Verhältnis von Fiktion und authentischer Erinnerung. Glänzend gespielt und inszeniert. [film-dienst]

Forget directors, actors, and screenwriters: based on this documentary, nobody talks as passionately or poetically about the art of film as cinematographers
