Moscow Believes in Tears

by Louis Menashe

A rich compendium of movie reviews and film essays published from the late 1980s forward that displays Menashe’s encyclopedic knowledge of Russian cultural and cinematic history. A society’s films reflect its culture and history, and Menashe is very good at illuminating Russia’s reflection in plain review-speak that doesn’t resort to academic art-babble.

— Paul E. Richardson
