boring
8 June 2014 | by (Russia) – See all my reviews

A fine specimen of cinematographic pen-pushing, with very mixed agenda and nothing to say whatsoever, apart from the gallery of monsters who stood at the helm of the Soviet Union at one time or another. If there's art in a rogues' gallery, this is it. What can be deduced from Boris Yeltsyn staring into the kitchen table, beats me. As for the depiction of sh*t we've always been living in, there has never been anything new in it, even in the late 1980s when this "lyrical documentary" was made. If you want Sokurov, go elsewhere. His "The Sun" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0439817/) is the real masterpiece, for instance.
