    I've never seen one. What are your favorites?

    The WWII movies look interesting.

    kukushka (cocoo) - a movie about russian/finnish war of 1939-40. extremely good.
    igla (needle) - about a drug addict's life in the late 1980s. features all of the band Kino as actors
    kavkazskaya plennica (prisoner of caucus mountains) - a comedy about stealing a bride... its old.

    A movie about the giant clusterfuck which was the invasion of Finland seems very interesting indeed. It's crazy how little we know about that shit over here.

    Are there any good Russian rock/metal/any other kind of music documentaries?

    Do people in Russia like Dr. Zhivago?

    'Cocoo' is not about Russian-Finnish war. It just shows some place on the Russian-Finnish border during WWII. It's quite a new movie but there are some good older things like: 'Dogheart' (based upon Bulgakov's novel)
    'Solaris' and 'Stalker' by Tarkovsky
    'Alexander Nevsky' by Esenstein (an old but really great movie)
    'Adam's Rib' (a tragic comedy about four very different women of four very different generations)
    etc,etc,etc...
    Some do while others don't. Personally I'm not very excited by this. :)

    Hell yes I like it! The lists posted above will provide a valuable resource if and when I start to get some decent cash flow. (The fact that you bothered to type the titles and names in both Russian and English will also help me when I study Russian.) I generally use my time to research music, but I love the whole idea of inter-cultural communication. Your site seems like a great resource and the more translations you have, the more univerally useful it will be. Speaking for those who research movies like I research music, I say please translate as much as you can. :]

    I see you've listed love, drama, and comedy... how about war, action, and horror?

    Hmm. I've been buying used movies lately and the selection is piss-poor at best. I'm glad you pointed that out. I'm gonna look into it.

    Soviet and Russian movies aren't an easy nut for a foreigner I reckon. It's entirely different from Holywood production. Soviet movies had no violence at all. Even actions were built on a psychological picture of stories behind movies.
    Cheers:))
