"Kin-Dza-Dza1" is an entertaining and imaginative entry in the long list of speculative fiction going back to Jonathan Swift to satirize society through fantastical settings. In this case, it adds a distinctly late Soviet flavor to the recipe of its observations of social mores, with pretty good effects for the time. And even better is the fact that this movie comes with its very own on-screen glossary. Granted it comes halfway through, long after it would have been good to know what 'etsilop' means.
A blend of Mad Max, Fellini, Bunuel and Besson's 'Le Dernier Combat'.. in Russian.
One of the most bizarre and interesting flick having post-apocalypse settings.
Very unique and quite brilliant.
Underneath the cheap effects, the odd hops in continuity and other curious mishaps, this remains a fine peace of art.
It's time someone organises a flash mob in which every participant does the squat and says "koo".
