|Don't miss this masterpiece. Shot in 1 take in The Hermitage. An astonishing cinematic achievement.|
I'm posting this on Moscow time where it is already September 16th. The Den ever mindful of our vast International audience likes to put out an occasional Special Edition and we wish them to have a full Den day of acknowledgement for their significant contributions or inspiration to The Arts with today's focus on Cinema.
|I'll second the "Superb! Intimate and Epic!"|
|Excellent cast delivered on this treatment of Tolstoy's last days.|
Another stellar cast featuring the vastly underrated and underutilized Lee Marvin. I often mistake the lead actress for...
|The Den's Official Snake Charmer Nastassja Kinski|
|Den devotees are already well aware that Dr Zhivago along with Casablanca and The English Patient |
are GSL's Cinematic Holy Trinity.
|One of the very best James Bond movies|
Also, due to the Cold War we often had non-Russians playing Russian heavies.
|Colonel Rosa Klebb (Lotte Lenya) of Soviet Counter-Intel agency SMERSH.. GSL has no intentions of ever playing footsie with Comrade Klebb|
|Happy Birthday Katya! Even Colonel Klebb can't match wits with The Den's Intel Apparatus.|
|Katya, this one was Trushka's idea. She thought she might not be in attendance so gave me very specific instructions.|
We hope you like it.
