There is no God of love and forgiveness in the modern Russia of Andrey Zvyagintsev’s LEVIATHAN, but astonishing cinematography, rattling human drama and commanding performances make for a giant of a film. ” -Peter Howell, Toronto Star
 
“Call it what you like – a modern Russian epic, a crime drama, a black comedy or a scream in the dark – LEVIATHAN is a shaggy masterpiece.” – Liam Lacy, Globe and Mail
 
The movie expands, breathtakingly, into mordant humor, impenetrable mystery, ferocious satire and classic tragedy.” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
 
“Bleak and relentless as well as impeccably made, biblical in its name as well as its moral outrage at the powerlessness of the individual in the face of unchecked authority, LEVIATHAN is dealing with nothing less than the current state of Russia’s soul.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
 
From its chamber-piece delicacy and bureaucratic detail to a grandeur and implacable pessimism that seem as ancient as the land itself, LEVIATHAN is a distinctly Russian tragedy. ” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
 
“As harshly beautiful as the Barents Sea coastline where it is set, this parable inspired in part by the biblical tale of Job dumps more misfortune than one hapless man should ever have to endure.” – Kristin Tillotson, Minneapolis Star Tribune
