‘Reds,’ Warren Beatty’s improbable epic saga about the Leftist American journalist John Reed, was released 25 years ago, just as a generation of early 20th Century activists was aging. Beatty’s film captured their stories and combined them with the star-studded drama. As WNYC’s
Sara Fishko tells us, the film’s imminent appearance on DVD – finally -- will allow audiences to look into the film’s curious construction.
‘Reds’ appears at the New York Film Festival this Wednesday evening; and will be released on DVD October 17th.
