Synopsis

In the confusion and chaos of the immediate aftermath of the Great War, Lt. John Boles assists the White Russians in Archangel, a crystalline city of spires and domes.

The cinematic equivalent of conceptual art. It's all incredibly stylised and 'witty'. There are also some hilarious scenes (a man throttling another man with his own intestines!). This film can thus be entertaining, but only in a sort of intellectual way - one enjoys it in the same way one can enjoy a good joke. And this is the problem. Its intellectuality completely eclipses any possibility of aesthetic response, and thus it fails as a work of art. This film constantly foregrounds directorial technique in a way which obscures any 'themes' the film might otherwise have. It's as though with each scene the director is waving his arms in your face, saying 'Look at me! Aren't I CLEVER! Oh, the cleverness of me!' Having said that, I did like the scenes with the boy.

Fake cyrillic letters are not the reason for the low rating I gave this movie. It is sheer lunacy. I shall act in style with this film and forget it, with an exception for David Falkenburg.

My Movie Rating: Red Star 1 / 10
