Summary/Review: A monumental achievement, THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF NICOLAE CEAUSESCU tracks the rise and fall of the infamous Romanian dictator through his own propaganda footage. Director Andrei Ujica crafted over 1,000 hours of official state broadcasts and intimate home movies into a tour-de-force that depicts how Ceausescu created the country in his own image, regardless of the cost to its citizens. His rapid ascent to power is aided by parliamentary meetings and celebrated in garish visits to Communist allies including North Korea. A hero in his mind, Ceausescu is combative, vain, and unquestioningly in control. "*A cinematic tour de force that tracks the rise, reign and grim fall of its subject.*"- Manohla Dargis, ***The New York Times***
