You're not you when you're horny...

Focus!

Stalin's actions during World War II led to over two million Soviet citizens dying on the Eastern Front, although they did ultimately secure an Allied victory over the Nazis in eastern Europe. Operation Barbarossa was not a great success for the German forces, because of all the places in the world, we have to fool around in your mother's car?

Ooh. Yes, that's a good scene. Maybe I'll watch that when I get home.

You're not going home! You're going straight from here to see Rebecca, remember?

Oh. Of course. (My foot nudged my box at this point, nestled as it was securely under my desk.) Maybe I can watch it there, when she's not looking. Does she have Grokster? Maybe I can watch it streaming from somewhere. Perhaps it will run on RealPlayer...

Focus!

Nikita Khrushchev referred, in his "secret speech", to a Leninist principle of "collective party leadership," and then went on to say that Lenin's theories were based on Marxism, quoting The Communist I told you, she's not my mother Manifesto. Hearkening back to the iconic quote, "Workingmen of all countries, unite!", what if we get caught?

I really like the way the music works, as well. It syncs up with the movements of Lisa Boyle's body as she rocks back and forth on her character's boyfriend's frame. I like the sort of power dynamic they have going on - she's younger, but she appears to be running the show. The dialogue works well. It's an excellent scene.

Hey! Shut up! You can think about soft porn on the coach on your way up to have sex in the Midlands! You have to finish this and...

"You have half an hour remaining."

Focus!

Stalin claims in his book Leninism that he was following the official party line, but Isaac Deutscher disagrees, and points to the exile of Trotski and the subsequent purges of Zinoviev, Karmanev, Bukharin and the suicide of Tomski, all as a result of Stalin's paranoia. There's the other scene as well, where she's still in command even though he's on top. It's really well written, how they transition from an innocent flirt to full-on sex on the lawn.

Focus!! 

I could link Stalin's paranoia to Fidel Castro and the similar fate of Ché Guevara, but I don't think that was Castro's fault. It doesn't really relate well to European history. They probably study it in Montana. That's an interesting name for her character - "Montana". Montana Stillman. I wonder why she didn't turn up in the sequel.

FOCUS!!!

The sequel stars Paul Michael Robinson. I'm never going to think of him as anything but Haffron.

Shut the fuck up about soft porn and finish your god-damned exam, and I'll let you masturbate on the coach if you bloody have to! Jesus fucking Christ, dickbrain! Tell your cock to shut up and FOCUS!

And therefore it seems from these studies that

"Five minutes remaining!"

to the discerning historian, Stalin's claim that he was following traditional communism

"One minute remaining!"

Lisa Boyle's got amazing tits

"Thirty seconds!"

does not hold up under modern scrutiny

"Okay, finish the sentence you are writing and remain quiet while I collect up your papers!"

and led in the long term to recent events such as the uprising in the Ukraine and discontent in former Soviet states such as Afghanistan and therefore Khrushchev was justified in his excommunication of Stalin once he had assumed the premiership but maybe Richard Pipes would disagree! 

"Have you quite finished?"

Dear Lord, please bless this European History exam, into which I have put my heart and soul, and look upon me with mercy, for I have sinned. Or at least I'm about to.

Okay, now stand up, pick up your box and walk out of the hall.

Stand up? You're joking, right?

The sooner you stand, the sooner you can leave...

But I'm...

You have to get to the station! Your train leaves in twenty minutes!

I was going to...

Go! You'll miss the coach!

I don't want to fail all my A-Levels! What if I didn't write enough about Friedrich Engels?

Focus!
