The Masterworks Edition

"A coda that will have the movie's audience gasping in exhilarated exhaustion, whispering astonished gratitude to Sokurov for having created vigorous art...What's the Russian word for Wow!?"

-Richard Corliss, Time Magazine

"That rare thing at the movies these days: a new experience. It awes us with its technological feat, it sweeps us up in its mystical spell and, with its final scene-it takes us to an emotional climax of almost unbearable poignancy."

-William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Alexander Sokurov's (Mother and Son) cinematic tour-de- follows a modern filmmaker who magically finds himself transported to the 18th century. There, he embarks on a time-traveling journey through 300 years of Russian history. Filmed with a cast of thousands, three live orchestras and an army of technicians, Russian Ark is the longest uninterrupted shot in film history, and the first feature film ever created in a single take.
