New York Times review of The Young Karl Marx:
“Scrupulously faithful to the biographical record, “The Young Karl Marx,” directed by Raoul Peck…is both intellectually serious and engagingly free-spirited. The founders of Communism, full of intensity and ambition and sporting contrasting beards, look and act like pioneers of brocialism. They spend some drunken evenings hashing out the labor theory of value – Engels holds his liquor better than Marx – and many hours, together and separately, in furious paroxysms of thought. August Diehl’s performance (as Marx) is a marvel of itchy intelligence, and it strips away almost all of the character’s accumulated importance. “The tradition of all dead generations weighs like a nightmare on the brains of the living,” a slightly older Marx wrote, and what is most remarkable, indeed most exciting, about “The Young Marx” is how lightly that burden rests upon it.”
