Great writing, Intelligent, Slow, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if to see a study of the lives of several key figures in Stalinist Russia via a literate cautionary tale about the collision of art & politics.

Don't see it if you're not interested in Soviet Russian history; you require a linear storyline; you prefer visual spectacle to a loquacious play of ideas.

Beautifully played, Beautifully staged, Engaging, Analytic, Smart

See it if the early decades of the Soviet Union, its art & its human tragedy interest you.

Don't see it if you’re looking for a Dr. Zhivago knock-off. Read more
