THE LAST BOLSHEVIK
1993, Icarus Films, 116 min, France, Dir: Chris Marker

If there’s anything to equal SANS SOLEIL, it may be THE LAST BOLSHEVIK, Chris Marker’s astonishing look at the history of 20th-century Russia through the life and work of his dear friend, filmmaker Alexander Medvedkin. Told in the form of six letters to the late Medvedkin, THE LAST BOLSHEVIK is a film of heartbreaking devotion (to a friend, to an ideology, to film itself), of acidic wit and endless curiosity - oh, hell, we’ve run out of superlatives on this one. It’s simply one of the best films from the past decade - don’t miss it! In French and Russian with English subtitles.
