Red Empire brings to the screen interviews, film footage, and revelations about the past that were, at the time, considered by Westerners and Soviets alike to be monumental. Even now, with the U.S.S.R. defunct for more than half a decade, Red Empire, despite some weaknesses, remains valuable as a historical document and a multimedia learning aid.
