Donbass (Sergei Loznitsa) – This film is even more in the carnivalesque, scabrous and funny / despairing vein of Kira Muratova than A Gentle Creature. It’s a rotten daisy chain of bleak sketches targeting the ongoing atmosphere of violence, corruption and disinformation in Ukraine that ends up almost back where it starts, with one gruesome twist. As cinematically impressive as all of Loznitsa’s work, I initially wasn’t as impressed with the film as I was with A Gentle Creature, or My Joy, but it’s had a much more vivid half-life in my memory than I expected for such an episodic work. It really packs a cumulative wallop.
