The cinema was really the only practical application of new life technology for the Soviets during the time of the revolution. New found technologies such as airplanes and cars were not something feasible for everyday use by the Soviets. During the revolution when the Bolsheviks were making films, they were not very well done and and were of very poor quality. However when the civil war ended and Western films were allowed back into the Russian market, the Soviets were able to see how much better they could make their films by adding stunts and actual footage from real events. So, to touch on “what is revolutionary culture” I would say in this context that it is a culture that is very uniquely dismal when compared to the culture of the rest of the world at the time. The soviets were shut out from what was going on with the rest of the world, so their own little culture was decreased in growth and prosperity because how long they were not in tune with what was going on with the rest of the world. Also because of all the bloodshed and hardship from the revolution, there was not very much “culture” for them. What I mean by that is every one was so depressed and poor from war that they resorted to alcohol, particularly vodka which was a really really cheap way to make things in life seem a bit better for just a while.
