    Sokurov is the most important and internationally recognized modern Russian filmmaker. His films are often dreamlike, concerned with time, emotional truths, and states of being, not unlike his predecessor, Andrei Tarkovsky.
    1. Mother and Son - A (Beautifully filmed in a lush, misty landscape, the film explores the emotional bonds and conflicts between mothers and sons)
    2. Russian Ark - A (Famous for its single, unbroken shot, this film explores Russian history and an art museum's purpose as a repository and preserver of man's achievements.)
    3. Father and Son - B+ (A more straightforward film than Mother and Son (it even has subplots!), this film uses an urban setting to examine the conflicts and stresses inherent in the father/son relationship.)
    4. Alexandra - B
    5. Moloch - B-
    6. Dolce - B-
    7. The Second Circle - C+
    8. Hubert Robert. A Happy Life - C+
    9. Patience Labor - C+
    10. Oriental Elegy - C
    11. A Humble Life - C
    12. Elegy of a Voyage - C-

    Have only seen "Father and Son" thus far which I wasn't too crazy about. Have "Russian Ark" in my "to watch" pile.

    Father & Son ***
    Edit: Brook, it looks like Mother & Son is being re-released by Kino in April. I'd like to see that one so hopefully it'll be a better DVD.
