USSR Beat Generation Revolt
23 August 2019 | by mihaskoanhedoniaSee all my reviews

So, as I'm a dumb plebe, I don't check at TV and YouTube, I missed this awesome picture that was released 2 months ago, and I've only recently got a glimpse of the bomb. Firstly, I want to tell you, that this picture is included in my specialty top 5 movies of the year, and here is a reason. Words do not convey how much is it full of wonderful camerawork moves, musical accompaniment and acting, the general atmosphere and her cultural significance. It is important to understand the point that this film is positioned as a requiem for Victor Tsoy and Mike Naumenko, but, for me, this picture is better perceived as artistic, because of its historical fidelity. Not to make spoilers, let me just say that it's a cool pseudo documentary about the punk / avant-garde get-together of the capital of all Russian-speaking cherry-pickings, namely "Leningrad Rock Club" and its beginnings. The other one is worth seeing, isn't it? Separately, I want to note the soundtrack, which took first place in Cannes, which is not surprising. How the hell can one not win with the overdose of such monsters as Bowie, Lou Reed, Blondie, T-Rex, Talking Heads, Iggy Pop and many more. Which is only worth the presence in the movie Shortparis, from which I, as always, caught a real aesthetic orgasm. Inserts with musicals, b/w and enduring the spirit of that era in the complex fascinating viewing experience. To sumbit I can only say, watch online, go to the cinema, but do not miss this movie with your interested eyes.
