  • Taxi Blues

    1990. USSR/France. Written and directed by Pavel Lounguine. Amid the accelerating social breakdown of the Soviet Union, an unlikely bond forms between a burly, anti-Semitic cab driver—the hulking embodiment of Old Russia—and a birdlike Jewish jazz musician. Probing the always problematic but ideologically privileged relationship of the working man and the intellectual, director Lounguine explores the paradoxes of a repressive culture on the verge of collapse. In Russian; English subtitles. 110 min.
