The BBC is reporting that Members of the Russian Communist party have called for the new Indiana Jones film to be banned in the county because they say it distorts history.
Moscow Communist official Andrei Andreyev said:
“It is very disturbing if talented directors want to provoke a new Cold War.”
Steven Spielberg starting a new Cold War!? I think someone is over-reacting just a tad!
He said many Russian cinemagoers were teenagers who would be “completely unaware of what happened in 1957”, when the film is set.
“They will go to the cinema and will be sure that in 1957 we made trouble for the United States and almost started a nuclear war.
“It’s rubbish… In 1957 the communists did not run with crystal skulls throughout the US.”
I can remember when Iran got their panties in a bunch when 300 was released last year. Some people just need to remember that they are watching a movie. They are not making factual documentaries, they are making entertainment.
