Have any of you seen "Night watch"? It's a very good Russian Sci-Fi / Fantasy movie (think Lord of the Ring + Blade). It's 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 keeps postponing the release, while sequel "Day Watch" is already out in Russia. Ain't US movie studios great Wink Sad

This thread isn't going to last long...

I used to watch a whole bunch of russian cartoons, when I was a kid. Can't remember any specific ones, though.

I thought I bought Battleship Potemkin in a flea market, once.

It had a porn flic with middle-aged women in it.

I wonder if I still have it around? Crotchfire might appreciate something like that.

The ones I've seen are The Return, Ivan The Terrible, Andrei Rublev and The Cranes Are Flying.

Hubby collects Criterion DVDs, so whicever ones he gets his mitts on, I watch.
Out of those four, I think I liked Andrei Rublev the best. I think I may have to rewatch them, since it's been a while... ah, nothing like a movie thread to remind one of nearly forgotten movies.

I rather like Morozko. Although I understand that's actually a Russo-Finnish co-production.

Eh, I haven't seen many Russian movies.

The only Russian films I've watched were old silent films like Battleship Potemkin and Aelita-Queen of Mars as well as some AgitProp stuff like Kino Eye-The Man With The Movie Camera and Three Songs For Lenin
