    I've seen some of 'em.

Any favorites you can name?

    Saudi Arabia, on the other hand, banned all cinema

That's where the insane part comes in.

Solaris is great. Alexander Nevsky. Moscow Does Not Believe in Tears.

Neat. Any of the famous Soviet comedies?

Not as of yet. Keep in mind, I grew up in the '80s, at a nuclear weapons lab in the middle of the New Mexico desert. Nevsky we had to order bootleg from a mail-order warehouse in New York. Solaris I didn't see until past college, despite loving sci fi. For some reason, though, we had tears on VHS at the local video store (the one, the only one).

I didn't even know Eolomea was a thing until like a couple years ago.

Well, now that you're living in a free world — if you have interest, here's a few films to start.

Thanks! Bookmarked!
