The Checkist (with English subtitles)
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.
