This film might have been less shambolic if Khrzhanovsky had decided whether he wanted to preclude or solicit his audience's involvement.

The result is a teasing, if trying, exercise.

In spite of a handful of striking images, 4 never resolves into anything special.

The picture finally bogs down in a seemingly endless spectacle of grossness and ghoulishness.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Khrzhanovsky's film, written by acclaimed Russian novelist Vladimir Sorokin, looks great but has a shambolic, off-kilter feel that might not be entirely intentional, and is alternately tedious and shocking.

Exhilarating, infuriating, mesmerizing, baffling, and out-and-out crazy, 4 certainly doesn't lack for ambition and outrageousness.

The terminally bleak meets the hypnotically beautiful in the Russian cryptogram 4, directed by the newcomer Ilya Khrzhanovsky.

This 2004 debut feature by Russian director Ilya Khrzanovsky is puzzling, intriguing, and often compelling, apparently set in the present but magical and futuristic in tone.

4 could be a gross-out phantasmagoria to test your cinematic stamina, or it could be a political commentary, though Khrjanovsky insists not.

Although Khrzhanovsky has several tricks up his sleeve, 4's most provocative quality is its ironic surplus of beauty.

There's much in the movie that won't translate to audiences this side of the Volga, but there's also a humor and a fierce filmmaking intelligence that demand attention.

Time Out Chicago

Khrzhanovsky and screenwriter Vladimir Sorokin have both the grim ideas and the little sideways winks in perfect equilibrium in the brilliant first half hour of this strange film. The rest of the film is certainly memorable, if increasingly impenetrable.

Even if its reasoning remains illogical, it amounts to a demonstration of unbridled audacity.

If your art film tastes lean toward orderliness and tidy metaphors, you could spend the two hours of Russian filmmaker Ilya Khrzhanovsky's fearless and mesmerizing debut feature.

The sheer surfeit of ideas in 4's first half hour alone could fuel a dozen warped movies; presented in this kind of rush, they leave you agape.

It's not always clear exactly what's happening in this dark tale, full of barking dogs and slabs of meat. But you won't be able to take your eyes from the screen; nor will you quickly forget this fiercely original eye-popper.
