The cultures of capitalism and television news are confronted in Peter Watkins' ("Punishment Park") ambitious, genre-defying political drama. Set during the era of the Paris Commune in 1871, the film boldly inserts the anachronism of modern-day new crews exploring the revolutionary-and far from utopian-system of "government" the self-righteous rebels forming the Commune organize, however loosely. Joachim Gatti, Jean Giacinti, and Virginie Guibbaud star. 5 3/4 hrs. total on three discs.Soundtrack: French; Subtitles: English; biography. Also includes the bonus feature "The Universal Clock: The Resistance of Peter Watkins" (2001). In French with English subtitles.
