Off the top of my head, some more revolution films:
Danton (198?, Polish/French co-production with Gerard Depardieu)
Reds [someone must have mentioned this, but I'll add it anyway]
The Mortal Storm (1939)
This one is about the moment of the Nazi takeover in Germany as it
effects a small Bavarian university town. Not a revolution exactly
but certainly a revolutionary situation.
Blockade (1938; a Walter Wanger production about the Spanish Civil War)
La Nuit de Varennes (1981?; French/Italian coproduction about the French
revolution and the attempted escape of the King and Queen, a really
Red Dawn (1985)
An execrable movie about a high school football team turning back an
apparently successful Soviet invasion of the US. Nevertheless, it
is certainly an attempt to imagine a counterrevolution.
Woody Allen's hilarious take on third-world revolutions.
Moon Over Parador (198?)
The Last Emperor (1987)
Return of the Jedi (1985?)
I'm sure I'll think of more later . . .
