    Sorokin Trip

    pretty interesting but at the same time i really don't get who this is for; it was nicely put together but had very little info to add outside of the general public narrative of his life AND told it in such an uncommunicative way that someone with no familiarity would probably have no idea what was going on. also the extended interview format (and not interviewing anyone else, reused footage from like the 80s doesn't count) really gave sorokin the floor and made it a bit of a puff piece. basically what i'm saying is that all of the most interesting questions were left unasked

    ★★★★½

    enigmatic. a real "haunting score" type of movie. sokurov is good at doing tarkovsky type weird shit in a way that's more weird but also more playful and less self serious (and religious!) and thus way less obnoxious. absolutely no clue what anything that happened here was supposed to mean though

    ★★★★

    aesthetically super cool, politically kinda wack, more so than it may initially appear. he loves to constantly say shit like "NOBODY HAD ANY IDEA" and similar ridiculous big and bold claims all the time, definitely narrativizes history too much and even his good political positions seem to be built on a weird liberation framework. very very very 2016, this shit feels like old news post-trump (in general the 'story' beyond the visuals isn't that interesting if you have a basic grasp of recent history, really relies on the mind-blown emoji effect).
