Storyline

Srubov is a part of CHEKA, the secret police Lenin established after the Bolshevik Revolution. They arrest, interview for a minute, try in ten seconds, and execute intellectuals, aristocrats, Christians, anti-Comunists, and their families. In the building basement, five people at a time are shot as they stand naked facing wooden doors. No one to remember their last words; no martyrs, just anonymous bodies. Daily, the kangaroo court, the executions, the loading of bodies onto wagons. Srubov is cold, distant, sexually dysfunctional, and a deep thinker, hated by former friends and his family. As he tries to reason the nature of revolution and the purpose of CHEKA, he slowly goes mad. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Gripping, dark and true
20 January 2010 | by troubledyouth66See all my reviews

I have seen this movie, and must say that it is what someone sees on the brink of madness. The only qualm i had was its portrayal of the officer as the hero. He was made out to look the part as a good guy, where in reality he made the decisions. Is not an officer above the law more responsible for his decisions then his brethren, only to fall short of some fictitious reality??? He shows release by death and this death is not real, a trophy for a killer giving path to a monolithic person above billions of disappeared. My personifage of this character is simply this, the fear of all fears is one's mind. Not to be the judgementor, but the movie screams terror far surpassing the characters in Jacob's ladder, or even apocalypse now in lunacy. This man is a destroyer of world's yet lives like a rat knawing for air. The headless horseman, the idle terror that lurks in the minds of others to have one struck down by this "idol." An idol who does this for a job does all that has come before it and has deserved his mother's supper. An elaborate decadence on part of the fugitive. This movie shows that fear IS the mind killer without one word. Signifying a gang. Much like Rumblefish yet the officer's character is in league with any I have not seen as of yet. This personality is generosity of a sick nature put to life. If murderers can move about their daily tasks, climb ahead spiritually, why not humble men? a better question, why not the telemarketing machine that is Hollywood? Hence the great purge prior to the Jewish holocaust of killing nearly 1 million semite aryan civilians by the jews, turks and dravidians of our modern age is indeed true. If you like this movie, try leo tolstoy, for russians have the uncanny ability of recreating history with unbelievable realistic incarnations of their own past.
