Critic Reviews for Hard to be a God
If you're a fan of 'Andrei Rublev' and 'Stalker', don't miss this monumental film.
The late director Aleksei Guerman's last film is a grandly arbitrary carnival of neo-medieval depravity. It's also a mudpunk allegory of Russian barbarism and backwardness.
Not only an unforgettable individual masterpiece but probably one of the capital-G Great Films.
The roiling setting alone enforces a medieval mind-set that feels genuine: brutal yet often jovially rambunctious and crude, pre-psychological in its sense of the cheapness of life and yet rich with local custom and detail.
Audience Reviews for Hard to be a God
Three hours of shit, piss, pleghm, blood and semen. It was an experience. If this sounds redactive, it's only because I was expecting something more from the intriguing premise. Alas I found the narrative incoherent and the characters are all so vile that I was never gripped (though I was never bored either). On a technical, physical and atmospheric level, the film is undoubtedly a huge success.
