Plays like a metaphysical Moscow version of "Mad Men" - on acid.
Viktor Ginzburg keeps this lively by trying out a new effect (commercial parodies, CGI, rapid montage) in nearly every scene. Not all of them work, but the overall energy is hard to resist.
Sort of a cross between "Mad Men" and an acid trip.
The movie contains enough fresh insanity and inventive visuals to make it an amusing cyberpunk extravaganza for most of its protracted running time.
"Generation P" delivers a brave, head-spinning commentary on the potency of advertising and the seduction of the soul.
Generation P is long and incredibly dense, but it's never boring-it's too wild and unhinged.
Rhapsodic and weirdly funny.
Like last year's adaptation of Shakespeare's "Coriolanus", a film very much limited by the source material--Victor Pelevin's cult novel--that reminds me of why I try to stay away from people who want to talk about their acid trips.
Although some elements of this Russian satire get lost in translation, its skepticism about consumerism and the political process is universal.
The film is incredibly cynical, but the experience of watching it is occasionally joyful in its sense of freedom.
Generation P is worth struggling through, even if it boggles you. In many ways, it's a keyhole into the future of the entire world.
