Reds (1981)

‘Reds,’ Warren Beatty’s improbable epic saga about the Leftist American journalist John Reed, was released 35 years ago, just as a generation of early 20th century activists was aging. Beatty’s film captured their stories and combined them with star-studded drama.

As WNYC’s Sara Fishko tells us, the film’s DVD release allows audiences to look into the film’s curious construction. (Produced in 2006)
