The Sun Regizat de Aleksandr Sokurov
Sokurov’s concern here is with an antiquated vessel of power, rather than power’s amassment or its uses, and the aesthetic of dimness is pervasive. As is often the case in his work, each new location—meticulously designed, decorated, and composed—appears self-contained, a world unto itself in a near-lightless universe.

If Aleksandr Sokurov’s THE SUN wasn’t so restrained, one could say that it was a staggering masterpiece. But “staggering” implies a grandiosity that is totally alien to the film. Conversely, if one were to say it was a quiet masterpiece, then that would not account fully for the profundity of the film. Of course, it is both staggering and quiet, and this seemingly irreconcilable dichotomy is proved false by the genius of Sokurov.
