Rocky IV is an emblematic movie, and constitutes a chapter in popular culture. When it was released in 1985, audiences from all over the world flocked to movie theatres. Rocky IV hits the spot, hard.

Rocky IV is dually symbolic - it embodies both the victory of the American boxer over the Soviet one and the victory of neo-liberalism over a dwindling socialism. The film fed a global popular culture that steamrolled everything in the US, in Europe and in the Eastern bloc countries.
Still today, Rocky is held up as a model by some and is a subject of derision for others. An emblem of the 1980s, its culture and its heroes, the film will be the subject of an entertaining analysis of popular culture - which in itself is highly political.
