Re: Russian Cinema
Welcome aboard the Good Ship MIMF.
I have not seen too many Russian Films but the few I have seen have given me more to think about than most of the the paltry, cheesy fare coming out of Hollywood. I particularly like the films by Tarkovskii, the biopic of Andrei Rublev, Aleksandr Nevskii, War and Peace and Ivan the Terrible.
