    Watkins' recreation of the Commune is fascinating, but the second half dragged for me as the actors frequently broke character to talk about their contemporary concerns with globalization. Watkins at times seems to be advancing the thesis that presenting a variety of voices is superior to the limitations of other filmmakers or network television, but these actors appear lock-step in their hatred of the current global economy; more disappointingly, they don't have anything more interesting to say about it than the average college freshman. Still, I couldn't stop watching it, and for a six-hour movie, that's really something. 4 years 8 months ago
