The socialist state of Russia that was the Soviet Union is now long gone, but it's legendary oppression and persecution live on in film. These are non-Russian films in which the USSR has been portrayed in.

This list looks very interesting so far. I'm excited to see the rest of it.

Nice idea! Check The Saint (1997).

If the list is opened to further suggestions:

Ninotchka (1939)
One, Two, Three (1961)

Nice list! How about K-19: The Widowmaker? :)

Nice list, comrade! Did you know that Arnold Schwarzenegger's director on "Red Heat" advised him to watch Greta Garbo's performance in "Ninotchka" in order to get a better handle on his character, and he was only able to nail it after he took that advice?

That's one reason why I decided to watch "Red Heat" recently. I wanted to see the connection between Arnold's performance and Garbo's, and if you watch both pictures, you can totally see it!
