Sergei Parajanov União Soviética, 1965

ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film Os Cavalos de Fogo

Oh good, more Russian Soul bullshit. Ooh, look at the suffering peasants, look at the hammy acting, look at the flat writing. Yup, this is a soviet film alright. Besides the wonderful semi-last scene, this is just aesthetic porn all throughout. And yet, Parajanov considers his prior work "garbarge" in comparison to this (guess I know what to avoid now). Fingers crossed that his follow-ups are better.
