  • josé neves's rating of the film Pavel Korchagin

    35mm. Another Sovcolor expressing the inexpressible, another surprise in an essential retrospective. Far from an official hagiography, though officially Bolshevik, the film narrates with extraordinary speed the life of a man in civil war, establishing unusual sound and image raccords, articulating the off of the sound with the in the image-an interior monologue-making it as in as the in which surrounds it. Startling.
