Top 100 USSR/Russia/etc Films - SCFZ Poll

At the Super Champion Film Zone film forum, we held a poll to discover our community's favourite Russian/USSR films ever made. Films from any country of the former USSR were eligible. Participants submitted ballots of up to 100 films each, and those ballots combined to produce the top 100 list below.

We're now holding polls for other countries - Iran and India are our next two polls. Feel free to join us!
