Target ★☆☆☆☆

"overly-complicated, hideously long and mind numbingly incoherent"
Russian cinema has a long and rich history of producing exceptional sci-fi movies. From the pioneering silent films of  Protazanov and Zhuravlyov, to the deeply philosophical films of Tarkovsky and Lopishansky, Russia has always used this speculative science based genre to comment on social issues rather than merely forms of escapism. Alexander Zeldovich's Target (Mishen, 2011) attempts to continue this tradition with his heavily stylised and hugely ambitious disquisition of greed, mortality and natural human behaviour.
