To be constructive: I understand what you were trying to achieve with the trailer: a disorienting, horror film-esque aesthetic. However, I think that it moves a little too fast when some of the clips and images that you use are scary enough on their own that you could rest on them just a little longer and not lose that deliberately uncomfortable feeling.

If it was a little less choppy, you could really use the clips for all that they are worth without losing the feeling of the tempo. In fact, I think it would add to that sense of discord.

People shouldn't have to pause to read subtitles. That's a very bad sign. You're trying to encourage people to watch your film, not make it more difficult to do so.
If people can't read the subtitles the solution isn't for them to pause the video, it's for you to slow it down.


And the subtitles in the speech parts really don't help people to see what's happening. As I say, they aren't even full sentences.

"That we hate from the deep of our heart Communism and we strongly" adds nothing, even if they pause to read it (which I just did). People understand the tone from the music and the fact you're showing video of political marches. You're trying to show a sense of social unrest and political divide, which is already shown and in no way helped by the half sentence above.
The next subtitle "Communists realised that, without National emancipation, there can't" again is completely unhelpful. It is again too fast and on a very busy background so quite unreadable, and again isn't even a full sentence. There can't what? It adds nothing.

The sentence "Denie their Bolshevik Jewish corrupted with gold from rich criminals and murderes" is actually on screen for less than a second. It's pointless.


Well I'm bored of listing these problems, but I get the feeling you're not going to change anything anyway.

Just slow it down, stop cutting back and forth so often, get rid of the useless subtitles, actually take care with the font and position of any writing (there was one page with at least 3 different font sizes spread across the page), and just generally... take a little more time polishing this up. It's very difficult to watch, and I'm sorry to say not very good.

If you think that is a legitimate idea, stop making movies. Never touch a camera again.
