  1. El Biffo's rating of the film Leviathan

  2. 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.

  3. Sergio Fernandez's rating of the film Leviathan

  4. 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

  5. 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

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

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

  7. 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.

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

  9. Charles1990's rating of the film Leviathan

  10. 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.

  12. lepetitjermey's rating of the film Leviathan

    aussi évident dans sa dénonciation qu'animal farm

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Carl Penguin's rating of the film Leviathan

    powerfull. the ending left me speechless.

  17. 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?

  19. lisa's rating of the film Leviathan

    life is just a period of waiting to be crushed!!

  20. Nadin's rating of the film Leviathan

    A slow-moving but powerful tale of corruption in Russia.

  21. Lina Balciunaite's rating of the film Leviathan

  22. Elephants Gerald's rating of the film Leviathan

    Soul crushing! With the added tease of being very funny for the first hour, until its events unfold so naturally and inevitably and Russianly that when it ends as such a matter-of-fact, it's devastating but it makes total sense. It reminded me of THE WIRE. Trying to be an honest person in this life? Fuck you, someone'll be there with a big boot to flatten you like the honest bug you are.

  23. commonwastrel's rating of the film Leviathan

    An extraordinary portrayal of one man's lost battle against an unrelenting bureaucratic force and its disregard for basic human virtues. Krichman's sweeping shots of a bleak and absorbing countryside continue to reinforce the impending devastation with an unfailing poignancy. During these wonderful sequences, one becomes fully immersed within a landscape that seems to have soaked in all the world's despondency.

  24. João Biscaia's rating of the film Leviathan

    Truth, bureaucracy and martyrdom.
