REPENTANCE

Quality:
****

-1 Caution advised for older children, including teenagers, and sensitive adults.
REPENTANCE, a 1984 Russian movie made in the Georgian province of the old Soviet Union, was banned for several years in its homeland because it exposes the evils of communism, statism and totalitarianism while lifting up the suffering Church and the triumphant, eternal Church of Christ Jesus. Christians should see and support REPENTANCE, which tells an allegory about the Soviet Union under Stalin by focusing on the story of a small-town communist mayor who tries to destroy all individuality and Christianity, but ends up destroying himself and his family.

CHERNOBYL

CHERNOBYL is a powerful, edge of your seat, dramatic exposé of the worst man-made disaster when the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in the Soviet Union exploded in 1986, spewing radioactive material across the Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, and Western Europe. The series is a search for truth in the midst of a communist bureaucracy’s lies and cover-ups.

THE LOST CITY follows the heartbreaking tale of one family, three brothers and a beautiful woman against the backdrop of the overthrow of Cuban dictator Batista in 1958 and 1959, and the establishment of Fidel Castro's brutal, oppressive Communist dictatorship.

THE GIVER is a science fiction movie about a young man who defies a tyrannical society that forces people to get rid of their painful and happy memories.

John Frankenheimer’s Cold War thriller about a Korean War prisoner of war who is brainwashed into becoming a coldly efficient assassin by his Communist captors.

BITTER HARVEST

FOR GREATER GLORY is a memorable movie about the resistance against the socialist president of Mexico in the 1920s who tried to shut down all the Christian churches forcibly, including shooting innocent people.
