Synopsis

Delo Anny Akhmatovoy
Russian documentarian Semyon Aranovich uses the diaries of poetess Anna Akhmatova to tell her life story in this avant-garde documentary. Intuitive montages are shown to bring to life the religious imagery of the writer, whose work was banned by Stalin for almost two decades. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi

I Worked for Stalin
In lieu of the one-person autobiographical account suggested by the title, I Worked for Stalin plunges headfirst, into the web of power and intrigue present amid the six members of tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin's "innermost circle": Molotov, Suslov, Zhdanov, Malenkov, Khruschev, and Andreyev. Evincing dispassionate attention to detail, documentarian Semyon Aranovich dovetails archival footage and period eyewitness accounts to recount the men's power plays against one another as each wielded an unholy degree of influence over the fate of the populace. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

Ya Sluzhil V Okhrane Stalina
I Was Stalin's Bodyguard is not a mere cheapjack Hollywoodized "expose" but the genuine article, filmed by Russians for Russians. Director Semeon Aranovitch brilliantly blends rarely seen newsreel and documentary footage of the three-decade Stalin regime. The centerpiece is a long, fascinating interview with the last surviving personal bodyguard of the Soviet dictator. Also included are home movies of Stalin, his family and his inner circle. I Was Stalin's Bodyguard is neither blatantly pro- nor anti-Stalin; it offers the facts, then allows the viewer to make up his or her own mind. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
