Yes Rasputin the Mad Monk same movie

The movie "The Promise" dealing with the Armenian genocide is do out soon. No doubt the Turks will be "upset" about it The National WW I Museum has a presentation dealing with it called "They can live in the desert but no where else."

not a movie but a documentary: PBS The American Experience: The Great War dealing with the US and WW I. As columnist George Will wrote on it "Watch it and wince"  some things in it:
The Meuse-Argonne Offensive the deadliest battle in US military history
Blacks getting shot and lynched by the hundreds
Civil liberties violations in the US during WW I

In Russia there is a movie that has just come out called "Mathilda" on Mathilda Kschessinska the ballerina and Nicholas II mistress. it seems some Russians really upset about the portrayals of Nicholas and Alexandra in this movie. The Russian government is defending the movies director.

Note: President Putin does not like Nicholas II. he once commented that Nicholas II and Grobachev were the two biggest traitors in Russian history.
