Was surfing the TV and tripped over a modern Russian film (in Russian) that looked like it was set in the old Soviet era, wondered how they handled that era in popular culture, couldn't understand a thing, so tried searching the internet, haven't found any Soviet era films yet but here's a modern gangster movie that looks interesting and has good reviews.

Will try searching for Soviet era again tomorrow.

WW2 movies are a dime a dozen, Germans=bad, Russians=good ... no problem.

I haven't seen a crime movie with action more realistic than that in Brat. This movie emphasizes that when you get shot you can't run as fast as a cheetah unlike the Hollywood films even today. It was a breakthrough picture for Russia's film-making and, in my opinion, a picture that could take on most of American movies of the same or similar genre. You wanna see the way things were done in Russia five years ago? You wanna see cruel reality? You want to see the real criminal side of Russia? See Brat. It isn't only an amazing movie because it is so realistic, the acting is awesome and you won't get bored for sure. Brat 10/10
