Visually remarkable look at a gay relationship; one of the richest inside looks at gay love and tenderness.

Alexander Sokurov's obscure new film Father and Son doesn't quite come off.
December 5, 2004
Tediously mannered look at the obsessive intimate bonds between a father and his teen-aged military son.

for a hit of pure cinema, you could do no better...than to spend a few moments reveling in its high

July 9, 2004
Poised and teasing in a way that might incite less patient viewers to madness. But you don't come to Sokurov for his narrative agility, you come for his rhapsodic longueurs.
