  1. Alan & Zayn's rating of the film Cinerama's Russian Adventure

    Not sure about the bears and chimps :-(

  2. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Cinerama's Russian Adventure

    Propaganda has never been this Epic-looking as with this cinerama movie. It demands a huge screen though to appreciate the nature and great dancing Numbers but the film look spliced together from different sourches helped with narration from bing crosby and the unattractive whale slaughtering scenes is hard to watch. Funnier then is seeing Russians acting as cowboys in order to make us feel they are just like the U.S

  3. DrFirestone's rating of the film Cinerama's Russian Adventure

    Interesting experiment, especially in the technical aspect. Watching this feature gives the feeling of travelling (sometimes flying) in a time capsule - it manages to capture Russia of the 1960s, its majestic landscapes, people, dance, music... The film successfully portrays the vastness and diversity of the Soviet Union. The narration feels a bit intrusive at times but, thankfully, it doesn't involve in politics!

  4. humberto1988's rating of the film Cinerama's Russian Adventure

    Parece ser que había una Rusia que no empata con lo contado por las historias oficiales... Disfruté verlo, grandes momentos contado con grandes tiempos...

  5. Crina Cătălina Bucur's rating of the film Cinerama's Russian Adventure

    The kind of content I've subscribed to MUBI for. Really grateful for this rare piece of Russian culture!

  6. msmichel's rating of the film Cinerama's Russian Adventure

    2016 restoration This 60's shot view of Russia is an ambitious and rewarding undertaking that captures the Russian people and landscape from every day life to industry to culture. A lovely time capsule full of memorable sequences and well narrated by Bing Crosby.

  8. captainfez's rating of the film Cinerama's Russian Adventure

    Charming except for all the dead animals.

  9. cin-e-phile22's rating of the film Cinerama's Russian Adventure

    The urban spaces and the far off hinterlands of Soviet era Russia seem not hypereal, but unreal. I'd only heard and read of the legend that was Cinerama, but this turned out to be more beautiful than my imagination could gather. The huge amounts of lighting it must've taken even for day time sequences! A most interesting document.

  11. DebraM's rating of the film Cinerama's Russian Adventure

    While the visuals were excellent, history has not been kind to this form of travelogue film. The voice over by US icon, Bing Crosby is positively cringe-worthy at times and the bucolic view of what was then USSR is certainly tempered by an almost paternalistic American lens. Possibly of interest to sociologists.

  12. dionysus67's rating of the film Cinerama's Russian Adventure

    Slightly inferior to the other Cinerama visual feast that plays currently on MUBI. The reason is that the Soviet version relies excessively on interior shots which maybe interesting but lack the visual splendor of those of landscapes. The latter bring to memory Parajanov and Solntseva in the impressive and poetic shots of forests, rivers and barren lands. Less appealing are the animal gags. Worth watching.

  15. Vinegar Factory's rating of the film Cinerama's Russian Adventure

    A vulgar, deranged fantasy. Soviet Disney. Bing Crosby is a knob.

  16. Juan Javier's rating of the film Cinerama's Russian Adventure

    ¿ de qué sirve ver cinerama sin cinerama?

  17. mindmelt's rating of the film Cinerama's Russian Adventure

    Some excellent and creative uses of this visually stunning format... and you most certainly won’t see whaling scenes like that in an IMAX movie.

  18. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Cinerama's Russian Adventure

    A gem for sociologists: an American (and very folkoristic) view on the Russian culture, but with some really great visuals.
