Poll question: Which work by Karl Marx would make for a blockbuster movie?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

8. A lot of it is commentary on the politics a century and a half ago, with great sprinklings of snark
Here, from "The Bill for the Abolition of Feudal Burdens" --

"... it appears at first sight that our Minister of Agriculture ... makes a tremendous 'bold stroke' .. abolishing whole medieval situation with a penstroke ... Enough of this! The Minister recognizes fully and generally that feudal burdens may be abolished only in return for compensation. So the most oppressive, widespread, and important burdens remain in place; or .. in view of the fact that the peasants had already gotten rid of them, they are restored ... A spectacular list of insignificant, regionally limited feudal burdens are .. abolished, and the main feudal burden ... compulsory labor services, is restored. With the abolition of all the rights listed above, the nobility sacrifices less than 50 000 thalers a year, but thereby saves many millions ..."

-- and so on for six or seven pages

It's sorta like reading the DUzies a century and a half from now in 2150

11. I'd be on the edge of my seat, waiting to see what happened next, if I were you,
but I guess that's why I'm not you

13. I've actually read "The Civil War in France." It's not a bad narrative story.
Obviously you'd have to switch the villain & hero roles.
