Excellent movie
7 March 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I just saw this movie last night on TV. It started at 1 am, but I could not tear myself away from the TV set. It made me think about how here in the US there are very few real movies made, and the ones that are made by real artists, are invariably never distributed. That's a very effective form of censorship. Anyone who has listened to their grandparents talk about the great depression, can relate to the stories these guys tell about having two shirts only: "One cotton for every day and one flannel for the holidays". The movie really touched me in a special way. The people in the film are truly real and have universal appeal. Oh God, how spiritually impoverished we Americans have become! It also reminded me of a young and talented (and pretty) russian country girl I met 4 years ago, and how our american system and values corrupted her in a very short time; In just the same way urban russians are probably been corrupted by the consumer society. Can mankind find a "middle" between misery and what we have now? America too had pockets of normality and "real" places up to the early 70s. I suspect the road back home will have to pass through cataclysmic tragedy and loss.
