Rating: B -- It's a unique film experience, one that is visually satisfying even if its narrative may be unfathomable. Full Review

It's impossible to watch even a few feet of film by Paradjanov without acknowledging his mastery of the medium and the originality of his vision. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Although Mr. Paradjanov has a reputation as a prankster, I don't think this is an elaborate joke. Full Review
