2. Letter Never Sent (1960)

This was a pretty beautiful film, and I enjoyed it. To me, the first 45 minutes or so, up until the fire, were filled with some great emotion, and really illustrated the range of what people feel when isolated in the wilderness with just a few others. This was a weird random find at the library, but I'm really glad I picked it up.

3. Дон Кихот (Don Quixote / Grigori Kozintsev / Soviet Union / 1957) I felt like I was watching a play sometimes. It even has lines like
"I hear the sound of trumpets. The drawbridge's going to be lowered and Dulcinea will come out onto the balcony."

5. Aleksandr malenkiy / Little Alexander (USSR/E Ger 81)
Russian/E German coproduction about Russian soldiers trying to help German war orphans after WW II. English subs. Otherwise it's in both languages but there's a male Russian voiceover drowning out all the German dialogue, and since most of the German characters are women or children it makes it kind of difficult to figure out who's talking. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it.

1. The Dyatlov Pass Incident (2013)

Surprising decent thriller that tries to spin a horror movie out of a real life unsolved mystery. The mystery itself is pretty intriguing and the film looks at the documentary-making process in unexpected depth as the plot involves a doco crew making a short film about the incident. Shrill acting and Blair Witch shaky camerawork are definite minuses here, but I was impressed by how genuinely creepy the film was at times.

The strange thing about my "Russian" challenge so far is that it is only a minority of the below Soviet films that are from the Russian provinces.

1. Sedmoy sputnik / The Seventh Moon (1968, Grigori Aronov & Aleksey German)
Stark and brave, German's debut (granted as a co-director) has the same level of visual strength and the same mellow tone as his closest follow-ups. However, it feels a little aimless, moving through several stories, coming back to one, before throwing us out on the battlefield. The emotional core however is great. We follow a lost previous general (teacher of law), as he tries to navigate the new communist rule. The scenes in the "prison" are the strongest, and I love how it keeps showing the communists in an equally bad light as "the whites", but it could have been even more powerful. The look of our leads tired and lost face is however a vision of incredible power. 8/10


2. Nezhnost / Tenderness (1967, Elyer Ishmukhamedov)
With Tenderness and his 1970 effort The Lovers Elyer Ishmukhamedov emerges as one of the great young directors and potential future masters of his age. The new wave atmosphere, lose flowing stories, brief character portrays, en-capsuled love and beauty and fantastically serene visuals makes his films incredible experience. He could be compared to Gay Gilles or Istvan Gaal, but he is entirely his own creation. Sadly there were smaller things stopping his films from climbing up to be utterly brilliant, but both are great, and seeing a director clearly better than his work is incredibly promising. I hope more of his films become available, though they do seem less impressive. 8/10.


3. Znoy (1963, Larisa Shepitko)
A wonderful but small portrait of a team of tractor drivers doing their duty at the outskirts of society. The overdramatization of their job seems inline with soviet silent cinema, and feels slightly off, but the focus on the individuals, the importance of their actions and the sense of duty still makes it an intriguing portrait. It manages to catch something truly sensual and human, I just wish it had gone a little further. 7.5/10.


4. Bilyy ptakh z chornoyu vidznakoyu / The White Bird Marked with Black (1971)
Starting with the best experience of the 4, The White Bird Marked with Black made me want to run to rewatch "The Eve". It's surrealistic stylings and spectacularly colorful fable invoked all the greatness and strengths of his previous efforts. It's largest victory was it's attention to set-design, and colour. It seemed each part of the background was expertly designed, and the nature shots were incredible as well. Taking us through the Soviet arrival in Ukraine, Ilyenko creates a plateau of brothers against brothers in a violent and unfair world. It feels like a violent dance, much like a 70s Jancso, but far more expressive. It plays with outbursts and excessive mannerisms, is often off key, but this adds to the atmosphere. Movement is still, at times, his slight downfall, and he doesn't reach the height of contemporaries like Parajanov and Tarkovsky, but it is still a phenomenal experience. 8-8.5/10.


5. Poloska neskoshennych dikikh tsvetov (1980)
This does not actually have an english title, and only has 14 votes on IMDb, which is a shame as it is quite the experience. It does however feel nothing like the previous efforts I had experienced, aside from still feeling slightly off when it comes to blocking. Poloska is a roughly shot and edited film covering an equally rough soul - a young restless child sent to reformery school. The bluntness of the cinematic language here fits incredibly well and adds a lot of feeling. It is almost as if his inner state is explored. Clearly low budget and you feel it, we still get a film with incredible emotion. It's key flaw is it's naive bluntness, which somehow also transforms into a bit of a pushed message, and the ending somply seemed too forced on this note. However, seeing the way the child is chased, his close captures, jumps, and dreams of freedom in such a fashion as expressed here, is almost spellbinding. If only it was a little more refined and altered in places it could truly have been something. 7-7.5/10.


6. Lesnaya pesnya. Mavka / Mavka - Song of the Forest (1981)
I was really exited to see Mavka as it seemed like a return to fantastical, surrealistic form - and it is, however, in a bit of a weakened state. This film also had spellbinding visuals, but they were a bit more rare, with a lot of it feeling far more plain and ordinary. He takes a far more minimalist approach, with minimal dialog and sound as he explores legends of wood nymphs and other magical creatures living in a forest and interacting with humans. The main failing here is the attempts at humor, and some of the costumes simply feeling a bit cheap/silly. In fact I'm sad to say I was a little reminded of Rou's atrocious Baba Yaga. No, not as silly, in fact it is still a good film - but a tougher sell. There is still a lot of creativity, a couple of scenes even feeling proto-Malick in camera movement - but it could have been done so much better. 6/10.


7. Mechtat i zhit (1974)
Another small and forgotten Ilyenko, and here with just 10 votes, so I'm not sure if anyone else has seen it. Like Poloska it does not have en English name, and it is not set in the past, but it is still remarkably striking. Larisa Kadochnikova seems to essentially star as herself, with pictures from several of her previous films, and interestingly Ilyenko himself plays a love interest. The print is poor, but so many visual ideas work, as the film forms a strange meta-commentary on life, acting and fascism. It actually feels a lot like the post new-wave leftist films popping up around the same time in France. Frequently creative, borderline surreal, the portrait is simply lovely. 7.5-8/10.


8. Saba (1929, Mikheil Chiaureli)
Beautifully directed and shot, but absolutely ridiculously overdramatisized cautionary tale against alcoholism. As it falls short of being a style exercise it ends up in murkier waters. 5/10.


9. Magdanas lurja / Magdana's Donkey (1956, Tengiz Abuladze & Rezo Chkheidze)

A lovely little film about a poor family's love for the donkey they nurse back the health. It is a little thin and overdramatic, but is still very beautifully done. 7/10.


10. Obyknovennoe chudo / Ordinary Wonder (1979, Mark Zakharov)
Overuse of music that just doesn't fit, but me off from the very beginning, though it does pick up somewhat it just didn't strike me as well directed, and the tame musical jokes and general plot all fell somewhat flat. 5/10.


11. Lebedyne ozero. Zona / Swan Lake - The Zone (1990, Yuri Ilyenko)
This is such a beautifully ugly wonder, filled with striking symbols and despicably unsettling scenes, as it carves out a expressively minimalist goodbye to a failing Soviet Union. The fact that it is shot in a real prison, with real prisoners as extras (the same prison Parajanov was in, which it makes clear, and it is based on short stories he wrote while there) Ilyenko manages to create a truly wonderful film that if it can be criticized feels a little off with it's "romance", but then each aspect is off, raw and mostly far from logical or realistic. There is a an ugly poetical (anti-)realism that is achieved - truth through the iconoclastic and absurd - and it is pampered with metaphors, many of which I surely did not get. Absolutely wonderful cinema. 9/10.


12. Zacharovannaya Desna / The Enchanted Desna (1964, Yuliya Solntseva)
An atmospheric and poetic love letter to Ukraine, which isn't too striking or poignant, but is still a very nice viewing. 6/10.


13. Ty i ya / You and Me (1971, Larisa Shepitko)
A really quirky new wavey film from Sheptiko that feels a lot like lesser films from the Polish or Czech new waves. The playful nature is very fun, but it is just missing something at the core, and is slightly off the mark on the somewhat larger themes it seems to be playing with. 7/10.


14. Pastorali (1975, Otar Iosseliani)
Just like Aprili this Iosseliani film was beautifully shot film, but at the same time didn't capture any feelings strong enough to truly draw me in. It is largely plotless, focused on country life and how how a small community reacts to a musician group staying over the summer. The interaction, especially during the rehearsal scenes, are quite beautiful, but it wasn't enough to spellbind me and the film ended up feeling more flat than it should be. 6.5/10.
