The 20 Best Russian Films of the 21st Century

"In the Soviet Era, strong state support gave way to a bustling film industry through the centralized and prestigious studio Mosfilm. In 1997, a mere 14 films were released in the Russian Federation. The tumult that came about from the dissolution of the Soviet Union had clearly taken its toll on the now moribund film industry.
As the 21st century emerged, Russian film experienced a resurgence. Young filmmakers such as Andrei Zvyagintsev and Aleksandr Sokhurov began garnering international acclaim.
Having developed their crafts in a more open society, influence western film is also strong in contemporary Russian work. This list attempts to demonstrate those running themes and historical comparisons, and to draw on cinema across various genres and styles with no particular caveats".
