Psychoanalyzing the USSR
15 June 2003 | by (Here/there/everywhere) – See all my reviews

The story of the Soviet Union through the eyes of Sigmund Freud's ghost. Very non-traditional, in that there are no actors or even action in the traditional sense. The film consists of a lot of archival documentary footage, with the Freud character commenting on how events unfolded from a psychological/sociological viewpoint. It's not a dry history lesson, but rather a fascinating deconstruction of this portion of Russian and world history. The film itself deconstructs toward the end, as the fourth wall is broken. I'd say this wouldn't have worked if it was drawn out any longer than the hour it runs. As it is, a fascinating examination of a country that's, at best, an unwilling patient.
