Reds by Warren Beatty( Visual )

19 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beatty's project to make a film based on the life of John Reed gestated for more than a decade. Reed was a politically committed journalist and activist living on the margins of respectable society whose involvement in radical American politics took him to Russia in 1917. Beatty saw parallels between radical politics in the sixties and Reed's life and times. Inevitably Beatty elevated romance, notably Reed's relationship with Louise Bryant, above politics. Nevertheless, his decision to use more than 30 'witnesses' as a kind of chorus to complement the drama was both daring and innovative for a big budget Hollywood production, as is his montage approach to the drama in the first half of the film. The witnesses bring multiple and contending perspectives in describing social spectacle and making comments on the historical personalities represented in the biopic

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Belying what many think of as the technical orientation of their job, cinematographers can be remarkably loquacious, a fact evident from the beginning of the interviews with 110 prominent practitioners of the craft.

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