    You can order russian movies at ozon.ru
    They seem to have stopped shipping CDs/DVDs to outside of Russia...
    Dare I say you can download pretty much everything? A free copy for educational purposes is usually allowed

    Wow, you a serious cinema connoisseur! I have to admit that I didn't see some of these films. I am not a big fan of Paradjanov... Do you know that the full surname of Konchalovsky is Mikhalkov-Konchalovsky and that he is a brother of Nikita Mikhalkov? They are so different though... If you haven't seen Runaway Train by Konchalovsky it might be worth it. That's his biggest Hollywood work I think. There is nothing Russian about it, but it is a very solid and intense movie.

    Finally someone who has the right opinion!!!

    I have seen Nostalghia and Zerkalo about 3-4 times in whole....

    Tarkovsky was a great poet, artist and thinker. With Tarkovsky cinema reaches the level of art in this otherwise "abused" genre.

    Ditto

    Havent seen Andrei Rublev yet though.
    Oh - DO, DO, DO!!!!

    It's fantastic.

    I totally agree with Zhenya, Tarkovsky is one of the best.

    I remember sitting up all night with my sister, both huddled in a huge duvet, downing litres of hot tea, while watching first Solaris, then Andrei Rublev I know Solaris is the more famous of the two (here anyway), but I preferred Andrei Rublev.

    Have just bought Stalker, so I'm looking forward to that!

    Watching that at the moment

    anna (mikhalkov)
    urga (mikhalkov)
    oblomov (mikhalkov)
    burnt by the sun (mikhalkov)
    Anything Mikhalkov I love - he can tell the most horrible stories in the most lyrical, sweet way....


    ivan grozniy 1 (eisenstein)
    aleksandr nevski (eisenstein)
    I almost agree. Eisenstein is one of the greatest ever - but I prefer Ivan Grozniy 2 (my absolute fave; I'm not even counting anymore how many times I've seen it...) and Strike.

    the man with the movie camera (vertov)
    Again, I almost agree - but in the same "family", I prefer Pudovkin and (especially) Dovzhenko. Beeootiful.


    unfortunately, very few russian/soviet/cis films are available where i live (paris).
    Fnac! Try out a couple, different Fnacs have different choices. The Brussels one is shyte, there's nothing at all - but the Ghent one has a whole Russian Film Section (hurt my Visa card there.... ). And if you're in Paris, you're only a two to three hours' drive away. (or you could ask a Fnac in Paris to order them for you )

    Yes Tarkovsky was an artist of enormous proportions. I hope you liked Stalker even though it is in many ways more uncommonly narrated than Solyaris and Rublev. Fantastic though.

    My two favourites are, perhaps, still Zerkalo (the Mirror) and Nostalghia.

    But they are all irreplacable masterpieces.

    "Night watch" ("Lord of the Rings" meets "Prophecy" meets Blade meets Matrix) a very good Russian Sci-Fi / Fantasy movie is in american theaters now. Did anyone see it? The movie been out on DVD for some time, but since Fox bought all American distribution rights, they have mandated to stop making NTSC formatted dvds of it. The disk has been slowly disappearing from even Russian stores in America. And Fox kept postponing the release until recent limited release, while sequel "Day Watch" is already out in Russia on pal dvd (without subs only). Both installments beat American movies in Russia. And the studio is insisting on filming the 3rd part in English. Ain't US movie studios wonderful

    Has anybody seen the film Crime and Punishment, it's not related to the Dostoyevsky novel, instead it's three short plots all in one. The only one I saw was where this business finds out that there is a new government decree that you get for embezzeling and he gets really worried. Then a policeman comes and takes him away so his wife and her brother sell everything in the house and she divorces her husband and marries the neighbor. Although the police only took him away to ask him to be a witness in a court. It's rather hilarious.

    Well, Night Watch came & went in US theaters. American studio ruined chances of yet another foreign film to be seen:
    waited too long to release it, didn't properly advertise it, and showed it in too limited number of theaters. Even the release of the DVD seems to be on hold.
    But I guess most American viewers are just not too interested in what is going on in the rest of the world.
    Even though majority came from Europe in not too distant past (1-4 generations removed).
    So did most American actors, and a few have Russian roots, like Michael Douglas & Harrison Ford.
    I found 45 Hollywood actors & actresses who's parents or grandparents came from Russia or Soviet Union:
    Please let me know if you know of any other actors of Russian descent.

    Have anybody of you seen День радио (The Day of Radio)? It's actually a play, not a movie, but it's available on DVDs. This comedy play depicts one day of trendy Russian FM radio station. Funny dialogs, nice songs and loads of humor.
