    Not as painful to sit through as I had been prepared for. Those interested in the development of left-wing film, or in 20th-century Latin American history, will find enough to hold their attention, although that attention might start to flag during the second half of the four-hour running time. Most others will probably find it tough going from the start. 7 years 3 months ago

    It's playing on Saturday afternoon (3.19.11) in Los Angeles. (At LACMA, if anyone happens to be reading this in time.) 9 years 7 months ago
