The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceauşescu
Dir. Andrei Ujica (2010). A three-hour, unexplicated assemblage of official newsreels and occasional home movies, this autobiography earns its title by presenting Ceausescu's image as he wanted to show himself, not only in Romania but on the world stage, cavorting with leaders ranging from Charles De Gaulle to Richard Nixon to Kim Jong-il. The film is a grotesque social psychodrama with mass deception and megalomania pushed past the absurd.
