    0 for 2 on Tarkovsky so far. Felt like Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade to Find the Wizard of Oz and Break the Seventh Seal, but with none of the lightness of any of those constituent parts. Beautifully shot, but I just didn't care one iota about anyone or anything.

    Upon reflection, it's amazing how a simple talking heads documentary can be enlivened so by great images that accompany the soundbites and statements at the heart of the film. That being said, the analysis offered is so prescient, so forward thinking, that it makes complete sense that it was picketed and rioted against when it was originally shown. If someone had told me this was made a few years ago, simply with archival footage, I'd have believed them given the level of detail and authenticity on display. Truly sobering.
