  1. lbunuel's rating of the film Leviathan

    A convoluted film that ends up smashed by its own irrelevance. The most annoying aspect of this is how formulaic it is, and how strongly it tries to mask this lack of expressivity with layers of a very European and useless idea of "subtlety".

  3. nejurgi's rating of the film Leviathan

    leviathan shows how youth in russia looks at the church, it shows the ambience of a small russian village, it tries to portray the polarity between a big city and small town, it shows the ambience of longing for something else and something better

  4. Aivaras_Z's rating of the film Leviathan

    A story about political and spiritual downfall, exploring various religious themes as well as the erosion of social contract within a cynical system based on self-interest. It's dark as it is usual for Russian movies with a sociopolitical theme, but it does not make it any worse.

  7. FISCHER's rating of the film Leviathan

    Gigantesque monstre marin dans la mythologie phénicienne qui dans la Bible symbolise les puissances du mal, "Leviathan" a pris désormais ses aises et ses quartiers dans la Russie tsariste de Poutine où le bon vouloir de certains s'arroge le droit pour leurs seuls intérêts de puissance et de domination, hommes de main, femmes liges, pelleteuses et bulldozers en action et en soumission... www.cinefiches.com

  10. smndvdcl's rating of the film Leviathan

    Yes, it may be a "message movie", and its lack of cinematic formalism dethrones Zvyagintsev from the conceptual, contextual and aesthetic league of Tarkovsky, but let's consider clear merits. It remains incredibly articulate in expositing endemic issues within lawful process, and the vindictive nature of communities based on territorial agendas. It's a hard watch, but revelatory in addressing real human antagonisms.

  12. ihor's rating of the film Leviathan

    A fine allegory of contemporary Russia exposing the sin laden within every depth of Russia's institutions from the government on down to the individual. Attempts at reform, justice or meaning only end up failing as forces seemingly beyond control, be they fate or the nature of Russian character, impede. At times Zvyagintsev falls into vodka soaked Russian cliches, but the clever, if linear, narrative is effective.

    [that scene with the bulldozer]

  14. goulton green's rating of the film Leviathan

    The car dash board with 3 images of holy characters and to the right 3 images of naked celebrities broadens the narrative from the local hero and the Goliath to the issue of unleashed and uncontrolled powers at this moment all over the world. Be it the Coalition of the Willing (what a horrifying name) or a club of conspirators, powers are brutally crushing everything that stands on the ways to their interests.

  15. Braden Vallenères's rating of the film Leviathan

    The powerful advise their victims that the only path to happiness is to accept their lot. It says so in the Bible, after all.

  16. kopfkompass's rating of the film Leviathan

    Epic landscape & score. Too epic, given the flat story and shallow characters. Also too long. And too much of too much vodka.

  17. Augusta Le's rating of the film Leviathan

    One of the most impactful stories ever.

  18. Adèle Vivet's rating of the film Leviathan

  19. Jenny Coldpussy's rating of the film Leviathan

    After watching this, Zvyagintsev became my favorite living director. But since I have a particular taste for cynical fatalism, I wouldn't recommend it to everyone, specially not to someone who wants to see a feel-good film. I still can't wrap my ahead around the fact that it was partly founded by the Russian Ministry of Culture. I guess Putin thought that acting in mysterious ways would make him look like a god.

  21. ammar's rating of the film Leviathan

  22. Michael A's rating of the film Leviathan

    Not only in the landscape motions I reminded the Wanderer above the Sea of Fog; is in the tale of our desolation that the painting's blue is entirely revitalized to me.

  23. Murat Erdem's rating of the film Leviathan

    Modern bir klasik olamayacak olsa da günümüz sineması için nefes aralığı.

  24. James Mackin's rating of the film Leviathan

    A really sad story about the bureaucracy of government, and how that can destroy lives.
