News from Ideological Antiquity. Marx – Eisenstein – Das Kapital is News from Ideological Antiquity: Marx/Eisenstein/Capital (2008) is one of the most complex and monumental films of recent film history. Throughout the almost nine hours that the film lasts, its director, Alexander Kluge (Germany, 1932), offers his own construction of Eisenstein's unfinished project of filming Capital by Karl Marx, an idea conceived after a feverish encounter between the Russian filmmaker and James Joyce in 1927. News from Ideological Antiquity is also a new twist of the screw towards understanding the contemporary spectre of Marx, through a phantasmagoric image comprising free association and the montage of ideas, capable of re-imagining cinema as a medium for criticism and for knowledge.[1]
