Khamatova’s Films Ranked

June 13, 2013 — 2 Comments

Well, I think it’s time, no? This has been my Chulpan Khamatova’s journey so far. Surprisingly, most of the films that remain hard to find (and hence are not subtitled in other language) have been my least favorite. It could be a case of lost in not-translation, but I’m confident in my non-subtitled watch experience to trust my instinct.

If you switch Vremya Tantsora for Doctor Zhivago (which was a tv miniseries), and place it on the 5th spot, shifting everything that’s below Good Bye, Lenin! down, I think you have a solid Top10.

A more than solid Top10 can be made with Doctor Zhivago still shifting everything below Good Bye, Lenin! down. And a super solid Top5 ;P with Luna Papa, The Event (WHY AREN’T SUBTITLES FOR THIS AVAILABLE???), Tuvalu, The Land of the Deaf and America.

I will be adding other films as they come by.

    […] A long long LONG time ago (actually, about three years ago), I made a rough list of Yu Aoi films I had watched and ranked them on MUBI (then TheAuteurs). Since I’m way too lazy to bother adding films to their database, unless I really REALLY wanted the films to be on their database, I’m just gonna work on the ranking here, like I started with my Russian fandom love Chulpan Khamatova.
