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]

Thinking that he had glimpsed the face of Evil as a witness to atrocities committed on the innocent during WWII, Lankester Merrin lost his faith in his fellow man and the Almighty. He renounced his vocation, and is now an archaeologist in Africa. A collector of rare comes to him with an odd request. An old Christian Byzantine church has been unearthed in Kenya, surprisingly intact, as if it were buried right after its completion. Merrin is asked to find an ancient relic hidden within the church before a British expedition can. Interested, Merrin agrees to take the job. Beneath the church, something much older and malevolent sleeps, waiting to be awoken. The blood of innocents flows freely, but the horror has only just begun. In the place where Evil was born, Merrin will finally see its true face

Cinematographer style( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 271 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. The men and women interviewed are interested in discussing the aesthetics and emotional content of light, composition, movement, and color--the building blocks of the film image. Forget directors, actors, and screenwriters: based on this documentary, nobody talks as passionately or poetically about the art of film as cinematographers
