Oh my goodness. Streisand at her best and Rogen is great too, underplaying his normal stereotype. It is really very funny.

This review is from: Derek - Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
This is a 21st century example of what Christianity is all about. Maybe this sounds strange in the context of a comedy but Ricky Gervais gently demonstrates what CHARITY really is about: respect for the other inspite of his handicap, unkindness, weakness or un-sociability. This goes for the main character as well as the rest of assorted loosers and loomers around him, some of whom are really unpleasant specimins when we first meet them. Derek, because of his simplicity, makes us see the good in all of them. I was so touched by this series. And it is funny.

Red Star Over Russia: A Visual History of the Soviet Union
Red Star Over Russia: A Visual History of the Soviet Union
by David King
Edition: Paperback
Price: £19.98

5.0 out of 5 stars David King is the greatest expert on Soviet imagery and iconography there is., 30 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have all of David King's books. I recommend them all HIGHLY.

This is the extraordinarily stunning visual history of the Soviet PR advertising machine that sold brutal oppression to the masses. The iconography the Soviet made use of is first rate. I suppose it had to be to cloak the horror of the gulags, forced famines, random executions, paranoia and the Great Terror.

I suppose this book's moral is to beware of putting form above substance. Soviet Russia's iconography is the greatest example of spin-doctoring in history.

5.0 out of 5 stars The horror, the horror...., 30 Jun. 2015

David King is THE man to read for Soviet iconography and the brutal manipulation it spin-doctored. An absolutely chilling testament to the evils of Stalin and his predecessors.
