  1. Mtume Gant's rating of the film Letter Never Sent

    Normally a movie I wouldn't like, but my goodness the camera works ability to translate complex emotional states is absolutely awe-inspiring.

  2. Ronja's rating of the film Letter Never Sent

    Soviet esthetics and tendency towards heroes (and not real human beings) is not my cup of tea, but the cinematography is beautiful, especially the winter sequence.

  4. Astral Vibes's rating of the film Letter Never Sent

    So, it turns out love is rarer than diamonds?

  5. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Letter Never Sent

    This is likely the most incredible handheld camera work I’ve ever seen. There are some truly inspiring, jaw-dropping moments in this film, things I really don’t think I’ve ever seen before. It’s kind of a shame the story itself can’t bear the weight of the phenomenal filmmaking going on here. It’s very, very good, but it has a few shortcomings.

  6. Aardsy's rating of the film Letter Never Sent

    Beautiful and heartbreaking.

  7. patchwork's rating of the film Letter Never Sent

    Un film dove i veri protagonisti sono gli elementi della natura, con un predominio di acqua e fuoco, che letteralmente sovrastano i personaggi, il vento li sferza in tutte le sue vesti, la terra (sotto forma di diamanti) è il miraggio. Il tono fortemente propagandistico del film passa in secondo piano rispetto alla sua forza sperimentale e visionaria.

  8. Tabikenezer von Higglesbloom's rating of the film Letter Never Sent

    Double feature with Blair Witch Project

  9. Patrick Sheard's rating of the film Letter Never Sent

    The films simplicity is its greatest pitfall. A precursor to todays high concept nonsense; visually stunning yet anodyne in its portrayal of human beings.

  11. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Letter Never Sent

    Filme que hace homenaje a las causa soviética. "Letter never sent" posee un discurso claro. Sacrificarse por la causa es casi una aspiración. Mediante esto, los personajes, en medio de una catástrofe natural, se convertirán mártires a fin de que su nación sea más independiente. En paralelo, Kalatozov desprende una estética brillante. El movimiento de cámara es calculado, creando además esa fuerza de planos.

  12. Stevie's rating of the film Letter Never Sent

    More incredible cinematography. Kalatozov has been relatively unknown for too long, he is a visual genius. Samoylova is stunning again. More propaganda but I don't see that as a bad thing at all.

  13. tibber's rating of the film Letter Never Sent

    The Hulu Plus subscription really pays for itself again. Not quite as good as I Am Cuba, but I'm more convinced than ever that Kalatozov deserves to be mentioned along with the likes of Eisenstein and Tarkovsky.

    ¡qué técnica cinematográfica! bolsas para la baba...

  18. Holyphool's rating of the film Letter Never Sent

    It is amazing this astounding hallucinogenic masterwork has lain unknown since the late 1950's. Perhaps now in perspective we can understand Tarkovsky more as Kalatazov imbues the natural world with its own mystical terrors, and wonders, in highly expressionistic cinematography, music, and sound. The film also evokes another planet, hostile, unforgiving, returning human life to the cold, cruel earth, rivers and sky.

  19. A47's rating of the film Letter Never Sent

    Blackest of blacks and whitest of whites. Great use of crossfades and landscape to create a labyrinth in the wilderness -you really do feel lost watching this. The story is somewhat lackluster. The psychological drama is only partially relatable and so things feel a bit hysterical during the second act.

  22. Graveyard Poet's rating of the film Letter Never Sent

    Struggle for survival on the Siberian frontier, directed with searing intensity by Mikhail Kalatozov and featuring the dynamic, visceral cinematography of Sergei Urusevsky, gripping score, startling spatial sound effects, and another heartfelt, impassioned performance from Tatyana Samojlova.

  23. Stu Witmer's rating of the film Letter Never Sent

    I've never seen clouds used to better effect! Very creative use of rear projection, some fine hand-held camera work and extreme close-ups make this well-crafted film a treat that would be totally awesome on the big silver screen! Sometimes it goes a tad overboard, but that's like saying there are too many feathers in Hitchcock's The Birds.

  24. Francisco R.'s rating of the film Letter Never Sent

    A stunning craft went into this film, although its formal beauty and elegiac qualities are severely undermined by its nationalistic hollering and pacing problems, but its film language is so refined, the camera movements so sumptuous it makes for an almost obligatory viewing.
