The Checkist (with English subtitles)

Jabba's Soapbox

First published at 12:09 UTC on September 13th, 2017.

A drama from 1992 recounting the horrific genocide ordered by Lenin and performed by his Cheka (Bolshevik secret police). Sadly, the movie could not obtain international release.

This drama follows a Checkist commander as he oversees the "trial" and executions of countless thousands in dedicated killing houses.

While this is a dramatization with fictional characters, this is the only movie I'm aware of that has attempted to realistically portray the harsh brutality that was a daily occurrence from 1918-1922.
