First of all, in case you've never heard of her, Anna Akhmatova (pronounced ahkh-MAH-tah-vah) was one of the Soviet Union's most famous poets. "Fear and the Muse: The Story of Anna Akhmatova" chronicles her life, and Stalin's censorship of her poems. We get to see her participate in the Revolution, witness the murder of her son by Stalin's secret police, survive the Siege of Leningrad during WWII, and finally get to leave the country briefly to accept an award in the mid '60s. Anna Akhmatova was truly an amazing person. There will never be another like her. The documentary does a really good job showing her life.
