Worst film you ever saw? Well my next one will be better. Hello? Hello? Hope springs eternal. Here’s a bonus — the trailer. It’s all good, but the relevant words are at the end.

Then, as the result of a tragedy that was both personal and political, he became profoundly disillusioned with the radical movement and its social...
