Fifth about The Seventh

Leviathan

leviathanLeviathan: Andrey Zvyagintsev tells a great story, which has many themes that are universal, but also mingled with specific elements that give the film a particular flavor; it all results in a powerful drama. Acting is very solid and Aleksey Serebryakov, as the main character, stands out. The locations are great-looking, and well used by the no-frills camerawork of Mikhail Krichman (who also makes great use of natural light). The spare, moody music of Phillip Glass matches the landscape beautifully.
