Come and See (Elem Klimov; 1985)

July 4, 2019

CONTENT WARNING: We're dispensing with the usual jovial intro this time as the film discussed on this episode, Come and See, directed by Elem Klimov, contains sustained depictions of atrocities, including rape and mass murder. It's a very, very tough watch.

Joining Ally for this harrowing experience is London-based singer-songwriter and poet Sasha Ilyukevich. You can find out more about him and his band The Highly Skilled Migrants here:

SPOILERS from about 49 minutes in until the end.

Come and See stars Aleksei Kravchenko and Olga Mironova.
