Critic Reviews for Turksib
Turksib is one of the most interesting films that has come out of Russia.
The picture is well photographed and is excellent, pictorially, but It is strictly an educational of the well-known category and would be effective if clipped to short length.
We are ourselves almost too deeply involved with the beauty and the miracle of sheer thought transfiguration to realize what a stride forward art has taken, film art if you wish to deride and to deify that much maligned abstraction.
Here's a picture without a story, a scenario or a cast, but it grips the attention from start to finish and, although it is not classified by its Russian producers as an "epic," It justifies that appellation more than many others ballvhooed thusly.
I have called Turksib an ode. It is more than an ode. It is more than an ode, though it does not become the epic its momentum strives after. This is by no means frustration.September 6, 2019 | Full Review…
The propagandist elements feel less overt even while hitting on the common Soviet theme of technological progress.August 6, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
