  1. Marco's rating of the film Leviathan

    Powerful and ambitious. This film deserves attention, not as anti-russian manifesto, but as a great attempt to explore the human soul, corrupted by power, prone to selfdistruction.

  2. Bernardo Crastes's rating of the film Leviathan

    The movie was unclear on the message it was trying to send, following paths, only to abandon them afterwards. At least, while it's drifting through the plot, it does it beautifully. Great cinematography. I'm not sure about the humor, whether it was intentional or just a display of Russian culture, but I liked it.

  3. Maar's rating of the film Leviathan

    and a half, very solid movie, even tho i expected a bit more since all the hype but now i get it, in the sea of rbbish filmed these past years, this movie is refreshing. Camera work, frames and colourit is the same as Vozvrashchenie, which I liked better.

  4. Joel's rating of the film Leviathan

    Expecting a contemplative "masterpiece" i was instead met with a slow moving cryptic minimalist drama full of possible metaphors I didn't resonate with. Not too sure about the absolute praise it has received.

  5. Howard Orr's rating of the film Leviathan

    Beautiful, brooding, and disturbing, its mysteries and ambivalence are revealed a little at a time; a rare animal's bones or a rotting boat glimpsed at low tide, a little sadness, a little vanity. But the most intriguing question is whether Zvyagintsev is siding with Job in his sufferings, or Romans 13:1?

  6. El Biffo's rating of the film Leviathan

  7. Zane Curtis-Olsen's rating of the film Leviathan

    Drinking vodka out of the bottle. Shooting up old portraits of Soviet Premiers with AK-47s. All the good things.

  8. Sergio Fernandez's rating of the film Leviathan

  9. astygianelysium's rating of the film Leviathan

    pulls off its soap-operatic scale, and the sublimity of the cinematography is tasteful (nevermind that 'tasteful sublime' might be a paradox). what it's missing is a sense of levity to make its parable really transcendent

  10. Jason's rating of the film Leviathan

    Staggering and fulsomely compelling in the first half when we aren't sure exactly where we are going and the movie carries serious thrust. Somewhat disappointing as the whole approach becomes diffuse, leaden in its symbolism, and obligated to make its point afterwards. Still, monumental. That it exists, and that state money is involved, ought to prompt some serious reflection

  11. Marc St-Cyr (Death cinéphilia)'s rating of the film Leviathan

    Hugely disappointing! Dont ever compare him to Tarkovsky or Sokurov anymore!!!

  12. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Leviathan

    Zvayagintsev gusta de la dramática saturada. Cual Dardenne, el tema social es su enganche. A esto le suma un discurso metafórico, caso "Leviathan", sobre cómo un paisaje degradado predice la degradación de sus mismos habitantes, además de la desmitificación de los referentes religiosos ultrajados y cínicos. El filme conducía bien al hacer boceto de un drama judicial, mas su director peca de abarrotar tragedias.

  13. sabbi irimiás esaú alzate botero's rating of the film Leviathan

    i like this a lot but i'm mad bc i accidentally downloaded a 7gb torrent of it on kg so my ratio is f*cked

  14. Charles1990's rating of the film Leviathan

  15. msmichel's rating of the film Leviathan

    Cannes script winner that encapsulates the modern Russia in a David vs. Goliath tale that pits a drunken, brutish everyman against a corrupt Mayor who is out to appropriate the everyman's property and home. The feeling of a system caught between tradition/tyranny and law/budding capitalism comes through. Performances are great as is the vodka soaked dialogue throughout. A major achievement from Zvyagintsev.

  16. Sancar Seckiner's rating of the film Leviathan

  17. lepetitjermey's rating of the film Leviathan

    aussi évident dans sa dénonciation qu'animal farm

  18. Frank Lato's rating of the film Leviathan

    Great film. The cool thing is that this story doesn't only pertain to Russia -- it's merely set in Russia but has a universal appeal at its core.

  19. Roscoe's rating of the film Leviathan

    A low key drama of economic oppression and retaliation, always fresh and alive and packing a sneak attack gut punch at the very end. Check it out and hang in there.

  20. Marian Sorin Radulescu's rating of the film Leviathan

    Among others, a much too explicit discourse on "the mysterious nature of God" and on Russia's absurdist, post-totalitarian transition. Expressive setting, brilliant acting.

  21. Carl Penguin's rating of the film Leviathan

    powerfull. the ending left me speechless.

  22. etilen's rating of the film Leviathan

    - All power comes from God. As long as it suits Him, fear not. - And so, it suits Him?
