    Marxism In Action – This Movie – ‘Ashes In The Snow’ – Helps You Understand! 

    I had the misfortune last month to be tuned into France 24 – merely to build another blogpost on their biased ‘Debate,’ which is always over-loaded with anti-Brexit, Trumpophobic, liberal creeps – when, my intention distracted by domestic concerns, the state-funded propaganda channel moved on to the next delight, that repulsive shrill leftist hag, Lisa “leftist’ Nesselman.

    France24’s Far-Left Lisa Spews Her Bias Once Again! 

    She was, as always, abusing her position as ‘film reviewer’ to push her hateful pinko agenda, on that particular day singing the praises of Baba Yaga Bader-Ginsburg.

    Reasons for loathing Baba Yaga abound, but for a brief summary, I suggest you read this link.




    But let’s move along, to a film actually worth watching.

    Nesseldork will never, I expect, review the movie described below, so I introduce it to you today, and hope you have a chance to view it.

    I watched it, on You Tube, so you can too.



    Despite its bloody 100-year history of misery, enslavement, repression, and death, socialism is enjoying a revival of sorts among young people in the U.S. This interest makes obvious the fact they have no idea what socialism is or its deadly consequences.

    So before they fall in love with this malignant and lethal ideology, they should learn a little more about it.

    Gabriella Hoffman, whose family escaped the former Soviet Union, explains in The Resurgent:

    Before You Fall In Love With Socialism, Watch This Film

    The film industry would greatly benefit by making more films that prominently illuminate the horrors of Soviet Communism.

    I’m not simply writing this because my family fled the Evil Empire. The rise of socialism in this country should alarm us all. With culture being upstream from politics, Hollywood should use its clout to promote films that educate filmgoers on the horrors of socialism.

    Very few films have deeply explored the toll global communism had on the planet, as over 100 million people in Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, and the Caribbean died as a result of it last century. Today, countries like Cuba, North Korea, Venezuela, and others still struggle with socialism.


    Enter Ashes in the Snow (2018). It’s the film adaptation of Ruta Sepetys’ bestseller historical fiction novel, Between Shades of Gray. It was filmed entirely in Lithuania, adding to the authenticity of the storyline.

    The book has been translated into 27 languages and is required reading in many schools today.

    The film adaptation is available to download on video streaming services. The film’s director, Marius Markevicius, is the son of a prominent businessman who was forced to leave Lithuania as a child.

    Much like the book, the film is based on true events surrounding the illegal Soviet annexation of the Baltic Republics under the Molotov-Ribbentrop (Stalin-Hitler) Pact of 1939, which led to the occupation of these nations in 1940.

    It’s even more uncommon to see a film center around Lithuania, which was the first Soviet-occupied country to break away in March 1990. If you recall, the Soviet Union physically disintegrated in 1991.

      Very well worth watching. Thanks for letting us know about this film.
      It should be shown in schools and coleges, because it might be an antidote to all the marxist nonsense preached there under the guise of lectures,

    Torrents Of Tears! London Love Story 3 

    It IS the rainy season here in Indonesia…

    • …so I suppose we might have expected torrents of tears in the finally released ‘London Love Story 3’ which was meant to be in Jakarta cinemas last week but actually appeared on the 8th February.


    Hasil gambar untuk london love story 3


    A woe-packed tale of young Indonesian love, with only a little bit of it actually set in London, most of the ‘action,’ was filmed in Bali, where a devastating accident occurs, leaving the beautiful Caramel ( yes, Caramel!) played by Michelle Ziudith, unable to stand up, never mind walk about.

    This results in tensions between her and her betrothed, Dave (Dimas Anggara) which…

    Okay, go and see it if you want to know how it turns out!


    But already most of you are asking why I went to see it  – – since my known film preferences are for films about good guys shooting communists or jihadists.

    Thing is, one cannot be selfish; my co-viewer last night was – and always will be! – addicted to the Indonesian sinetron (‘soap’) genre.

    So no snipers for me this weekend! However, the movie was not without it’s entertaining side!

    I laughed out loud when Caramel’s fiance told the hospital administrator that he didn’t want the highly-skilled surgeon ( Derby Romero) to operate on the crippled lovely…


    ….because he was known to be a party-animal who enjoyed a drink!

    But fear not, it all works out…

    PS  -Michelle is very attractive, yet it has to be said that, personally, I found Irena Librawati…


    …who plays her Mum, to be rather fetching!

    But then I’m a mature fellow myself!

    Would You Like Your Blood Boiled Tonight? 

    Just a brief stress warning.

    I was taking it easy one evening at home this week, channel-surfing, when I saw an ad on National Geographic Channel, telling (warning?) viewers…



    …that tonight, Thursday, at 9pm Jakarta time, they’d be showing that film, “The State!”

    It was previously on the ‘British’ Channel Four…

    Pure poison… it’s like a Nazi recruiting film from the 1930s: 


    We wrote about it a few weeks ago…   

    ‘Humanising’ ISIS Pigs – UK ‘Drama’ Wins Guardian Praise! 

    ….slamming a Guardian gargoyle who oozed enthusiasm about how it portrayed disarmingly ordinary: modern, educated young British Muslims, their street slang and banter jarring grotesquely against the context they’re in, their naivety and pursuit of camaraderie…


    …as the dirty scumbags went merrily off to join the ISIS rape-gang!

    I intend to watch it, for the same reason I read the Guardian, because it is BOUND to recharge my indignation batteries and make me even more determined to wage blog-war against the forces of evil.


    On the other hand you may prefer just to sit back and view CNN, ABC, CBC or BBC….it’ll probably have the same effect!

      No thanks Ross.
      I will sit back and relax at 9pm with ‘NCIS New Orleans'(all new episodes) because I believe that Daily Mail critic you quoted and my blood would boil.
      I leave the indignation to you, because you do it better than I ever could.

    Dunkirk in Jakarta! If You Ain’t Seen It Yet, Go Today! 

    After a weekend marked more by inertia than anything else, I decided yesterday to go into town early and heed a powerful recommendation from somebody whose judgement I trust.

    ‘You’d love it,’ she had said!

    And besides, Monday is a cheap ticket day at Jakarta cinemas.

    So into Plaza Indonesia I wandered, and paid Rp.50,000 ( AUD $5) and soon found myself one of less than half a dozen people seated in the very comfortable cinema on the 6th floor of the fancy mall.

    Dunkirk is one of the best movies I’ve seen in AGES!

    I’m no expert in cinematography, but the filming of the aerial battle, as brave RAF pilots ( family connection for me there! ) endeavoured to save the British ships from German attack was captivating.

    And the human stories, especially that of a father and son and their young friend on one little pleasure boat…


    Hasil gambar untuk dunkirk film little boat


    …engaged in the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of soldiers from a previously little-known town on the French shore, were moving beyond words.

    Not least the final scenes, the British people’s heart-warming welcome to the rescued, some of whom had feared that they’d be ‘spat on in the streets’ for their failure to hold on in France…


    Hasil gambar untuk dunkirk film welcome home

    True Brits!


    Cheered by crowds along the railway line!

    Such a stark contrast to the prosecutions launched against splendid members of the UK armed services who shot our enemies in Ulster, and to the insults heaped on America’s Vietnam heroes on their return, after their betrayal by the college creeps and rotten media.

    Yes, of course, the patriotism was a key part of its appeal for me, such a treat to have a ‘war movie’ untainted by the cess-pool politics of modern Hollywood’s ruling class!

    But even just as a straightforward drama, from anyone’s perspective, it’s great.

    Go see it!

      You are so true about this film, Ross.
      I do not know the story before but it was very spesial and interesting.
      I was sad when it was finished but also happy too.
      I understand why the British people must love to watch it.

    ‘Bitter Harvest – Red Evil Exposed- And A Lugenpresse Reminder! 

    With a sudden gap in my social life last month (now fortunately filling up again) I went out and bought a bunch of DVDs –  then my dvd-player died, after ten years of sterling service!.

    So it’s only this week I have had the opportunity to sit back of an evening and see if my choices were wise.

    Hasil gambar untuk holodomor film


    And what a good decision I made when I selected ‘Bitter Harvest,’ a quick pick, made at random, based largely on a cover that promised an action-packed movie.

    It’s the story of one village’s nightmare, but reflects the reality of what happened in Ukraine in the 1930s, when true communism was put into practice, a reign of horror, known still as the Holodomor.

    It was a deliberate genocidal war of starvation waged against the people of that long subjugated nation, which claimed the lives of at least SEVEN MILLION innocent people.

    No need to tell the story here.

    If you know your modern history, you’ll know it already, or should!

     If you are not especially into history, watch it anyway.

    And while you’re doing so, consider the evil American journalist who collaborated in the cover-up.

    It would not be unfair to think of him as the precursor of today’s Guardian, CNN, BBC, France24, etc., all the rotten media-creeps, like that heinous hag in Germany, Ina-Maria Reize-Wildemann, covering for crimmigrants…

    God Save the Tsar – But To Hell With Censorship! 

    This cutie is raising hell in Russia.

    Natalia Poklonskaya httpsiytimgcomviAvn1tAHGxvMhqdefaultjpg
    Her name’s Natalya Poklonskaya and she’s a member of the Duma, (parliament) there.
    Interestingly, she’s banned from Canada and various other Western countries, under the sanctions currently in effect.

    But her latest claim to fame is her display of loyalty to St. Nicholas.

    Not Santa Claus, but one of the most famous victims of communist murder, Tsar Nicholas II…

    ….who, since Russia escaped the clammy clutches of Marxism, has not only been a symbol of a more glorious past, but also, thanks to the Orthodox Church, was made a saint, in recognition of his martyrdom at the hands of Lenin’s satanic minions in Ekaterinburg.

    Nifty Natalya is to be praised for her monarchist fidelity, but I’m not so sure about her ways of expressing it.

     She’s waging a political war against  “a controversial film centered on a love affair between the future Tsar Nicholas II and a young ballerina.” Russian Filmmakers Protest Attempts To ‘Censor’ Film About Young Tsar

    The film is called ‘Matilda’ and its directed by some geezer named Aleksei Uchitel.


    • censorship
    • ==============

    We who live in Indonesia have seen more than enough of film  – and TV – censorship. I’m not talking about the mind-blowing silliness of putting opaque clouds over cleavage etc. on TV. 



    Dimana Bokong2nya? – Where Are Our Buttocks? 

    More important by far is shameful sectarian intimidation – as when SCTV backed off showing a pro-tolerance film, because a bunch of IslamoNazi thugs showed up at their offices, threatening mayhem. https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2011/08/29/as-anger-mounts-over-sctvs-cowardice-islamonazis-widen-the-net-well-attack-at-all-costs/

    Much of the weirdest censorship here in Indonesia is caused by religion…

    ‘Noah’ Banned – Who’s Next? State Censors or Sectarian Enforcers? 

    …or rather not religion but religious intolerance. We weren’t permitted to watch ‘Noah,’ the state censors failing to provide any rational explanation for the ban.

    Unfortunately, the backward ‘Blasphemy Law’ here facilitates this sort of sorry censorship.

    Hence my dismay when I learned that Russia too has benighted laws of that sort.

    Nifty Nat ‘wants Moscow prosecutors to declare that Uchitel’s film violates provisions in Russia’s Criminal Code against insulting “the religious feelings of believers.”

    Russian law can be superior to that of many Western countries, to be fair. They have, for example, legislation not unlike that good old UK Clause 28 ( now excised from the British statute book, alas) which is aimed at protecting Russian school-children from gaystapo indoctrination.

    Good for Russia!

    But why on EARTH should ‘religious feelings’ be protected by law from insult?




    Were that the case in France, for instance, then the jihadist scum who carried out the massacre at Charlie Hebdo, not that long ago…




    …could have stayed home, happily raping captive girls – or boys – and just left it to French prosecutors to silence free speech.


    Poklonskaya also charges that Uchitel wrongly portrays Russia as a country full of “drunkards, gallows, and fornicators.

    I’ve been to Russia. The people are mostly just like us. And just like us, there are drunkards and fornicators among them.

    Big deal!

    ‘Twould be a duller world without them!

    As for gallows, that’s something else where Russia has the edge on the West.



    Sensibly, traitors – like the pig-ignoramuses who went off from the UK, France, Belgium, Germany etc., to join the ISIS rape-gang and declared allegiance to that caliphate, would stand a good chance of being put to death if Russia caught up with them.

    Pity Western countries don’t do the same!

    RIP John Hurt 

    No idea what his politics were but his talent transcended such things.

    My personal favourite film of his was ‘Scandal,’ based on the Profumo Affair, the shocking episode which took up most of the summer of 1963.

    I was in Canada for much of that time, and watched the news with my Ontario farming kin. They found it hard to believe that their beloved ‘Old Country’ could have got itself into such a mess.

    John Hurt as Stephen Ward, with Joanne Whalley as Christine Keeler, in Scandal (1989)


    The 1989 movie did a masterful job of depicting the peculiar atmosphere of that era.

    The Sixties saw the eclipse of self-confidence among the UK ‘Establishment,’ which had hitherto been on the side of a traditional Britain, but which thereafter ceded ground – or sold out – to people with very different values, or with none.

    And a lot of good that’s done The Old Country.

    But Hurt captured the essence of the era, his character, who was always dubbed a ‘society osteopath,’ a parasite vaguely aware of what really mattered but gliding heedlessly through life towards self-destruction.


    • Hasil gambar untuk film scandal keeler
    • =====
    • John Hurt perfectly played Dr. Stephen Ward, who battened onto people who saw power and celebrity as ends in themselves, not as a means by which to serve their country.
    • In the end, we in the audience tended to sympathise more with the Ward character than with anyone else.
    • That was down to Hurt’s thespian gifts.

    More Good Reasons To LEAVE – Lousy Lard-Ass Moore! 

    Just up, making ready to go out, and unwisely, for my equilibrium, left the tv at EuroNews.

    Hence I had to listen – can’t bear to watch that gross  – and grossly unpatriotic – scruff-bag ‘American’ multi-millionaire Michael Moore…




    …telling us he can’t understand why Brits would vote to Leave EU.

    I append a link to a more detailed news report Britain ‘toxic’ for considering leaving EU, says film maker Michael Moore  in which the swine unburdens himself of useful insights in British politics. 

     “It’s incredible. When I saw that the party here had elected Corbyn, ‘I thought ‘wow’. Talk about atonement for Blair.



    “That’s getting back to Labour in its roots.”

    The pinko rat is wandering about Europe touting his latest drivel film, but is – HURRAY! -skipping Britain. 

    “It was a conscious and purposeful decision to not go to the UK, with all due respect. We didn’t feel there was anything left to learn here, and you have given up on yourselves to such a degree.”

    • Well, we shall see on June 23rd how many Brits have given up on themselves.

    This man is rotten to the core. I offer a few previous posts, to remind you just how rotten.

    That one sums up his contempt for anyone who fights sectarian terror. But this one…
