Think I might live toot 'The Young Karl Marx' movie, it looks just generic enough to be funny

Ok so it started with Marx reading an article from his Young Hegelian days, it cuts to him arrogantly saying "I know what's best" and dismissing their ideas as vague (which they are)

Then Marx interrupts Proudhon during a lecture and goes over all the usual tropes beat for beat.

Meanwhile Engels is being an incel creeping on the workers his father fired.

Marx meets Engels and they almost immediately start sucking each other's work off. There's a chase scene out of fucking nowhere as cops chase the two through Paris (I'm so confused)

Oh wow, the editing in this film is really bad, its shots don't match, the audio is sliced together in beat with the video cuts so it's really obvious when they're stitching two different takes together.

Oooh Karl Marx is having nightmare/flashbacks now

And boring philosophers are talking boring philosophy in period mise-en-scene

This movie is... Odd...

Oh fuck... This film really subscribes to the great man theory of history, this isn't good...

They're just calling eachother great men, then politely insulting eachother and giving speeches to workers.

Every other scene shows these people literally talking down to workers, even when not giving grand speeches.

This movie is really dark... Not in terms of the tone, but in terms of TURN THE FUCKING LIGHTS ON OR COLOUR GRADE THIS MOVIE PROPERLY FUCK

"We live in a society!"


It just had a scene where Marx, Engels and Engels' wife all calmly and politely told off a posh person for exploiting children.

This is hilarious.

Aaaaand Marx is going off on a "Poor people are stupid" take again, someone punch him please

It's the 1840s and they're already trying to split the left. Why are tankies like this?😹



They're jealous of how all Anarchists get free overcoats.
