Keith Uhlich Slant Magazine Suffice to say that Elem Klimov's biopic of the mad monk Grigori Rasputin more than lives up to its title. Rated: 2/4 Jul 1, 2006 Full Review Kelly Vance East Bay Express From the vantage point of 1975, Klimov portrays the situation as a freewheeling absurdist carnival of grotesque laughs, always with the threat of violence. May 5, 2010 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Hysterical and overly melodramatic biopic on the madman charlatan monk Rasputin.
