Critic Reviews for Dovlatov

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (3)

  • Dovlatov takes the novel approach of dramatizing just six days in the protagonist's life. And where traditional biopics devote at least some time to the subjects' creative achievements, Dovlatov is concerned exclusively with the hero's failures.

    November 30, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • [An] aimless period drama.

    October 26, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • An unusually entertaining bio-drama covering six days in the life of beleaguered Russian writer Sergei Dovlatov.

    October 24, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Evokes the pervasively banal paranoia of Leningrad under Brezhnev with a certain ease.

    February 22, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Maric, in his first lead role, exudes gentility with physical strength.

  • An evocative portrait of a stagnant era.
