A Sparkling Shrine to a Reviled Russian Leader
By Andrew Higgins|07 February 2019
President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia has reviled those years as a period of chaos, crime and “total poverty” that “nobody wants to ever see return.” Kremlin-controlled news media outlets regularly lambast what they call “the wild 90s” as a time of personal humiliation and shameful national weakness.

She Was Told She’d Be a Model. Of Course.
Jeannette Catsoulis|20 October 2011
A stripped-down, socially conscious drama set in the slippery world of human trafficking, Yan Vizinberg’s “Cargo” is commendably free of cheap emotional manipulation.
