Overview

Russian director Alexander Sokurov is perhaps best known to U.S. arthouse fans for his groundbreaking drama Russian Ark (2002) - a wildly ambitious drama that enlisted over two thousand actors and required them to hit every mark and cue in one perfect 96-minute take.

Overview

Russian director Alexander Sokurov is perhaps best known to U.S. arthouse fans for his groundbreaking drama Russian Ark (2002) - a wildly ambitious drama that enlisted over two thousand actors and required them to hit every mark and cue in one perfect 96-minute take. In truth, however, Sokurov has built an entire career for himself as one of the most vital and original filmmakers on the international stage. This box set offers three additional features by Sokurov. Whispering Pages (1994) features a nameless man wandering through decomposing catacombs and encountering a series of literary archetypes from such authors as Dostoyevsky and Kafka; Stone (1992) travels to the Anton Chekhov Museum, where a museum guard and a mysterious older man cross paths; and Save and Protect (1989) reworks Gustave Flaubert's Madame Bovary as a surrealistic tragedy on the theme of universal suffering.
