I think Elem Klimov reached the full climax of cinematic revolution in making this film. Come and See stands with authority with the ability in hypnotizing me with its magical pendulum, it’s really rare I get to experience something like that. One of the aspects that really stands out for me is the sound production, which really enhances everything here to another level (take that scene of Florya going partially deaf or wading through the bogs for eg.). What really got to me and made me think of something other than the film itself was the heading near the ending: “The Nazis burned down 628 Byelorussian villages together with all the people in them.” 628 multiplied by let’s say 100 people per village = 62, 800 people murdered in that random obscure Belohosdkfh area… One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, all the way up to 62 800 people… God, what kind of a sick world have I been born into. LOL Yo… The only thing I hated was the final scene which didn’t really leave me with much hope but rather empty inside, but then again I don’t see how it could’ve ended better after all that took place. Don’t mind. The only thing I do mind is how Klimov decided that “Everything that was possible I felt I had already done,” and didn’t direct any more films. Apparently he’s never heard of evolution.
