  1. 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

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. bluehued's rating of the film Leviathan

    [that scene with the bulldozer]

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Augusta Le's rating of the film Leviathan

    One of the most impactful stories ever.

  12. Adèle Vivet's rating of the film Leviathan

  13. 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.

  15. ammar's rating of the film Leviathan

  16. 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.

  17. ceknklsn's rating of the film Leviathan

  18. Murat Erdem's rating of the film Leviathan

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

  19. James Mackin's rating of the film Leviathan

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

  20. cinegeek.de's rating of the film Leviathan

    Obwohl das russische Drama Leviathan in einem kleinen Ort spielt mit nur einer Handvoll Charakteren, verkörpert es "grandeur" - den expansiven Charakter der Parabel! Leviathan eröffnet mit grandiosen Bildern der russischen See im Norden, dort wo Felsgestalten ins graue Wasser münden... die ganze Rezension sowie die wundervollsten Film des neuen russischen Kinos auf cinegeek.de Willkommen!

  21. Lintang A.'s rating of the film Leviathan

    This is a David and Goliath story set in a desolate Russian fishing-town. But this is also a strong family drama, a tale of friendship, betrayal, corruption, hope, hopelessness... The cinematography also deserves a mention, there are countless wonderfully framed scenes. Reminds me of Tarkovsky's works. Hands down to one of the best film in this decade.

  22. Levent Güçer's rating of the film Leviathan

  23. Halil Küçükyıldız's rating of the film Leviathan

    God, state, religion, money and a weak man against the all of them. So touching and impressive film. Not adorable as Thr Return as but this is exactly watchable. The lansdcapes are awesome.
