Catherine Stebbins’s review:
I know I should probably see this (as best as my Western eyes can) through the context of Russian history, but all I see is a visual feast that is gloriously over-the-top in all ways, and that is why I love it. I see it as a bizarre head-trip that never lets up. Some of the most startlingly beautiful and extravagant imagery ever to be seen in film.
