  • Sergei Loznitsa's documentaries are mainly compilations of archival footage, so it makes sense that his first fiction film is also essentially a compilation, an array of dynamic, aggressive bits rather than one coherent text. show more

  • The film's sociopolitical critique is as dull as a sledgehammer - and maybe on the money - but the truth is far more entertaining. show more
