‘Hard to Be a God’ is a masterful tour of a visceral nightmare

Hard to Be a God

Written by Aleksey German and Svetlana Karmalita from the novel by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky

Directed by Aleksey German

Russia, 2013

“The scholar is not the enemy. The enemy is the scholar who doubts.”

Aleksey German’s Hard to Be a God is in the running for the most disgusting films I’ve ever seen. The film produces an enormously affecting, intricately detailed, and thoroughly realized visceral nightmare, one that never wanes or becomes numbing over its three-hour runtime but instead accumulates into an at-times overwhelming journey into a world run by a phantom regime of hedonist ignorance and reactionary cruelty. Built upon a twist on science fiction that probes fascinating questions about politics, morality, and the myth of the arc of human progress, Hard to Be a God uses this genre framework as a platform to manifest a carnival of depravity and filth. Decades in the making, »
