Faut-le-faire: making a Ku Klux Klan film like this without any black actor.

Brooke Adams acts too good. It looks like she got lost on the wrong film.

Excellent. I see similarities to Fragment of Fear https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/fragment+of+fear/

although cinematographically interesting, the McCarthyist propaganda was really bothering me.

This film has everything that I would typically hate, but there is something magically charming about it. I love it.

@cobac @BaalMan which (non-European) directors would you suggest? I miss Ildiko Enyedi and Samira Makhmalbaf, Claudia Llosa, Jiayin Liu, Ida Lupino, Larisa Shapitko. Have you noticed they left out Leni Riefenstahl? It's a bit a predictable list, but I've seen more Euro- or occidental-centered ones, to be honest. Not bad.

Why would anyone watch a sports game instead of this film?

I always postponed watching this film, suspecting it to be McCarthyist propaganda. What a pleasant surprise.

What a pleasant surprise. Through an interesting storytelling with back and forth chronology it ixes recent chinese hstory with a family drama. A treasure.

Don't be scared by the "boring" comments. It's michalkov addapting Chekhov, not boring at all.
