Films worth watching...


To name a few:
"It sounds like parody," says Turan of this film, which is about the socialist musicals of the USSR and Iron Curtain countries: films with titles such as "Tractor Drivers" and "No Cheating Darling," made under the supervision of allegedly humorless apparatchiks. Stalin was actually a fan of the musicals.

"There is stuff at which your jaw just drops, and yet they were hugely popular," says Turan. "It's an interesting corner of film history."
