Reed: Insurgent Mexico

A fictionalized account of John Reed's press coverage and eventual participation in the Mexican Revolution of 1913, directed by Paul Leduc. Writing in The Village Voice, Amos Vogel noted of Reed: Insurgent Mexico: “A work of great subtlety. We enter, stage by stage, into the true realities of the Mexican (or any other) revolution: its lulls and confusions, fallible leaders, unexpected death, sudden friendships, meandering half-action. This is what it must have been like. The sentiment is anti-convention, anti-folklore, anti-heroism: therefore, closer to revolutionary reality.”
