terrific film
18 September 1999 | by (Claremont, California) – See all my reviews

I am a Russian-American journalist who lived and worked in Moscow during the early 1990s. I happened to catch "Lost in Siberia" when it came out. As someone who specializes in the political purges of the Stalin era and wrote a PBS documentary film script on the subject, I was deeply impressed by the historical accuracy of the film.
