Soy Cuba (I Am Cuba)

This clip was sent to me back in June by reader Jeff Martinek, check out the incredible soundtrack by Felix del Pilar Perez Castro, better known as "Sami". The film-- Soy Cuba (I Am Cuba) was made in '64 by Russian director Mikhail Kalatozov. Much of the film is fairly dreary pro-communist propaganda, but there's a few truly sublime moments, the above being my favorite. Anyway, I've been out of NYC and just got back, so I'll try and come up with at least one post by the end of this week.

Holy shit, that's amazing. Is the movie really all that dreary? The trailer looks pretty slamming.

"Is the movie really all that dreary"

It really does have its moments, just a bit heavy handed, kind of like a soviet oliver stone movie, but better.

Gee, ya think Martin Scorsese got any ideas from this sequence on how to shoot a nightclub scene?

It can't really have success, I consider like this.

This can't truly have success, I feel this way.
