  • Exquisite, self-contained curio.

    July 29, 2005 | Full Review…
  • Shakhnazarov's film effortlessly captures the times and the author's conflicted yet unyielding attitude, yet it never draws any conclusions -- the film remains under glass. It's watchable, nevertheless.

    July 29, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The force of the film is not as profound as Shakhnazarov clearly intended, and The Rider Named Death is easier to respect than enjoy.

    June 9, 2005 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • You have to wonder why Shakhnazarov, one of Russian's most experienced filmmakers, didn't take more care with the script.

    March 18, 2005 | Rating: 2/4
  • There are few real revelations to be found among these curiously dispassionate radicals, making the overall experience sort of like seeing the movie, instead of reading the book.

    March 18, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • If you like your antiheroes tall, pale and existential, you won't do better than Georges, the anti-czarist assassin at the heart of Karen Shakhnazarov's historical drama Rider Named Death.

Audience Reviews for The Rider Named Death

  • Mar 20, 2005
    [font=Century Gothic][color=red]"The Rider Named Death" is a Russian movie which is based on a real life revolutionary terrorist. The movie opens in 1906 with a series of killings of government officials. The main character, Georges, is the mysterious leader of a cell that is committed to revolutionary violence. Their main target is a grand duke. While all of this is going on, Georges is romancing two women: a member of the cell who is the bomb maker and an upper class lady.[/color][/font] [font=Century Gothic][color=#ff0000]"The Rider Named Death" is a well made movie. I like that it takes a chance by having its main characters the villains of the piece. It also makes two excellent points: [/color][/font] [font=Century Gothic][color=#ff0000]1. There is no difference between a terrorist and your common murderer. The violence is not sensationalized. Georges does not seem to have a belief in much of anything. [/color][/font] [font=Century Gothic][color=#ff0000]2. Terrorism is not a recent phenomenon.(A political assassination like those shown here in this movie started World War I.) It has been going on for a very long time. [/color][/font]
