    The Great Muppet Caper (1981) (rewatch)

    The humor and zany energy of this movie still hold up for me.

    Of course the Russian propaganda tries to depict Ukrainians as fascists. But Russia started WW2, invaded Poland and massacred 20 thousand Poles
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katyn_massacre
    so the Poles have a historical reason to detest both Russia (Katyn) and Ukraine (Wolyn).

    some things are touchy. I bet some movies would be touchy to the Serbs as well
    https://www.imdb.com/list/ls052107633/

    BTW, if you are really interested in the true history, then I recommend this book
    https://www.amazon.com/Bloodlands-Eu.../dp/0465031471
    there were TWO terrible fascist regimes - one in Germany, the other one in Russia, and most of Eastern Europe was caught between those, including Ukraine. The Ukrainians first welcomed Nazi troops as liberators from Stalin. So it is quite complex and not black and white. The Germans managed to face their own history, the Russians did not. They are still living it.

    As far as I know the ''moduis operandi'' of ukrainian fascists, banderas was pretty much the same as that of croatian ustashas...The ironic thing is banderas killed polish catholics and ustashas were like ULTRA CATHOLIC FANATICS and they even now support each other...What I saw in her and other poles I met is trying too hard to be ''best buddies'' with ukrainians and not really receiving much love from the other end...The world is a weird place...I actually tried to watch the movie with bad english subs but got sad and depressed even in beginning so I couldnt go further...

    My physician and friend is Polish. He emigrated to Australia 20 years ago and tells me all about life in Poland. Yesterday he wrote this in an email: we had been discussing a book called "Life at the Bottom" by Theodore Dalrymple. That book describes the race to the bottom (first in the UK and now USA) and the adoption of the tropes of the underclass being rapidly adopted by the rest of society because of cultural relativism (tattoos, body piercing, pants which hang down below the waist, foul language/the argot of the streets and reversed caps on heads). And my friend loathes Russians. He recently read "The Gulag Archipelago" in Polish.

    I was living in a horror like that for 30 years of my life. It was called socialism (socialistic Polish republic). Nation-wide brainwashing (successful) experiment. Nota bene: Australia is not too far behind the UK in socialistic achievements.

    Do you not find them intolerably and gratuitously violent?
