I watched The Young Karl Marx (2017) and I found it bizarre. It felt like hero worship than a biopic. There was also a lot of weird emphasis on making Marx and Engels both sexy and smart, as in driving the point home that they fuck. They felt larger than life, almost inhuman.

@magsalin even just viewing it as a film, it has some of the most shockingly bad editing I've ever seen.

I don't know how one could possibly make "leftists writing endless critiques of each other's work" into an enticing cinematic experience
