Russian Ark is an astounding technical feat that must be seen to be believed.Slant MagazineApril 12, 2014
Despite an undeniable attraction to the majestic, Aleksandr Sokurov seems equally adverse to straightforward spectacle, approaching potentially colossal subjects from odd, specific angles.Movie MetropolisDecember 19, 2013
It's worth noting that the footage was manipulated ... in post-production, but this unbroken take still functions as a documentary record of an exceptional logistical feat.Window to the MoviesMarch 31, 2009
[Characterizes] history as a large rush of information so huge, alive, and easy to get lost in that it would feel a shame if there existed nothing to give us a conduit to it.Film ScoutsJune 21, 2007
A film geek's dream movie. 90 minutes, one take.
