Alexander Sokurov


Hi, I just visited
 
http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/search-handle-url/index=dvd-uk&field-keywords=sokurov/ref=xs_ap_l_xgl/026-9744280-0151653

and I discovered two films by Alexander Sokurov who recently got a release on DVD Region 0. "Spiritual Voices" and "Confession". Does anyone got any information about these films or where I can find it? Thanks.

Re: Alexander Sokurov


These are both American releases (a joint venture between a French company and Facets.org in Chicago. The best price can be found at www.deepdiscountdvd.com. We don't know if they ship to Europe, though. Otherwise, try www.amazon.com. We have seen both of these VERY LONG films. Thank goodness for the 60X speed on our DVD player! Some very nice scenes interspersed among A LOT of meandering footage. We just could not relate to anybody in these films (other than the director himself.) The one question we were left with at the end was "Where were the spiritual voices?" We loved Spiritual Voices - Part 1, but after that it was an effort. Also loved the short film, "A Soldier's Dream", which is actually extracted from the full-length film. There's a lot of male bonding (hint) in these films, which is taken to an uncomfortable extreme (at least for us) in "Confession". Still, all in all, fascinating stuff from one of the most talented directors of our time!
