  • Simultaneously a modern essay on suffering, an open-ended thriller, and a black social comedy, it is most importantly of all a thinly-veiled political parable drenched in bitter irony that takes aim against the corrupt, corrosive regime of Vladimir Putin. show more

  • Leviathan is acted and directed with unflinching ambition, moving with deliberative slowness and periodically accelerating at moments of high drama and suspense. It isn't afraid of massive symbolic moments and operatic gestures. show more

  • Zvyagintsev's pessimism is leavened both by his comedy and his sense of beauty. Mikhail Krichman's cinematography captures the sublime grandeur of the landscape against which the nasty, brutish and short lives are played out. show more

    Cannot put into words how unwatchable this garbage is. Any so called critic would have to pass a polygraph before I believed they did. You\'ll fall asleep way before you get to watch an overweight fisherman do it. That\'s right part of this movie is a fat guy falling asleep in front of a tv.
