"Colonel Redl" is the middle film of Istvan Szabo's "trilogy of betrayal and political murder" that he made with the actor Klaus Maria Brandauer in the 1980's.
This film was made in Hungary in 1985 while it was still a Communist state, so if I'm not mistaken "Colonel Redl" is a veiled critique of the way the Communists used and abused their secret policemen in order to spy on citizens and crush dissenters.

In fact the vast mechanism that is capitalism is not a self-propelling automaton, but of course a system operated and reproduced by people, largely against their will, requiring active performance from a significant minority, passive consent of a larger minorty and the deliberate, violent, and predemeditated repression of the incessantly resisting majority.
Colonel, it's an odd charge to call me paternalist.
