Tells the story surrounding the mythology and history of Redbad, King of the Frisians.

A crazy old man appears in a war-torn city to correct the misconceptions of the retelling of his adventures.

It's a great fluff fantasy movie. I didn't see it back in the day, so it has no nostalgia for me.

Think The Dark Crystal - (1982 movie) or The Neverending Story - (1984 movie).

In Venezuela, when a democratically-elected socialist starts ruining the fourth largest oil industry in the world, using socialism, effort is made to initiate a regime change.

It begins as a pro-communist propaganda piece on how socialism didn't do nothin' wrong and real communism has never been tried. It gets good later on, as there are legitimate concerns actually being shown.

Feel free to look at this and compare it to current (2017-2018) reactions to United States president Donald Trump, because it will make your head explode.

You can thank events featured around this time, and the fucktardedness that followed, for plunging 90% of the population into poverty.. and I'm not exaggerating. This is the wealth-generation of socialism.
