Come and see "Come and See"!

Tonight we tackle what's considered one of the most disturbing movies ever made. This 1985 Soviet production portrays what happened in Belarusian villages when the Nazis came to Russia. Its two creators were so bent on making a realistic movie, they didn't care if no one would actually watch it. Yet in the intervening decades the cinematography, editing and thematic shifts of "Come and See" have rendered it an especially acclaimed film. 

And in going through CaS, we stick to the tried-and-true World War II Movie Night formula, i.e., no movie is above having some fun with... asides include lists, 80s nostalgia, "Dirty Dancing," quicksand, Rodney Dangerfied, and how I viewed the Soviet Union as a child of Reagan's America.
