    Find this time period so disturbing that it endlessly fascinates me. The twentieth century era of the Soviet Union is simply unimaginable at times. The sequence depicting the famine in the Ukraine felt like something out of the apocalypse. It makes me look at the attempt of cold and bleak emptiness in a film like 28 Days Later and scoff, and helps me remember that reality is often far more bizarre and horrific than fiction is capable of depicting.

    People aren't born monsters, the world makes them that way. Believe what you want, but in the end, that's what I took away from this one.

    Some of the best digital cinematography I've ever seen. It's possibly the best looking movie of the year too and I wish more people were talking about that. I do understand though why Joaquin Phoenix is what everyone is discussing, because he was extraordinary, and that was no surprise.

    Is it getting crazier out there?
