Critic Reviews for Dovlatov
Evokes the pervasively banal paranoia of Leningrad under Brezhnev with a certain ease.
Maric, in his first lead role, exudes gentility with physical strength.
More a portrait of a period of increasing conservative ideologies than a justifiable biopic of a determined writer, Dovlatov proves German Jr.'s ability to present something more digestible and straightforward.
Progressing in such a way that neither its premise nor endpoint is clear, the film is simultaneously persistent on a scene-to-scene basis and yet elusive in its totality.
An imaginatively realistic recreation of a bygone era of Russian culture, when literature and art were considered matters of life and death - and when holding onto your artistic integrity could literally damage your chances of survival.
