At its most affecting, satire, Russian style, is big, brash, bold, and beguiling. Russian-born, American-raised director Victor Ginzburg’s wild-eyed demolition of post-Soviet culture is a drug-fueled rollercoaster ride chronicling the exploits of a poet manqué who finds himself working in the advertising world after the fall of communism. First seen selling cigarettes, Babylen Tatarsky (Vladimir Yepifantsev) has a knack for scamming his customers, something that serves him perfectly as he climbs from his lowly position to the top ranks of the corporate world in the ‘90s—the era of Wild West capitalism, gangsters, oligarchs, and political puppets. Something of a mystic—he ingests various mind-altering substances in an effort to communicate with Ishtar, the Babylonian goddess of fertility and sex—Babylen’s crazed personal philosophy allows him to fit right in with the unfettered madness that surrounds him. Capturing an epoch known for its delirium with an appropriately delirious visual style that does not skimp on period detail or complicated set pieces, Ginzburg has created a unique, kaleidoscopic dissection of an outrageous era. Call it Fear and Loathing in Moscow….

Director Victor Ginzburg and Producer Jim Steele are expected to attend both screenings.
