  • GENERATION P

    You are invited to watch this rare example of a Russian indie film, a brilliantly visual and dangerous film soon to invade cinemas…

    GENERATION P, adapted from the internationally-lauded bestseller by Victor Pelevin, is a rude and funny dispatch about Moscow, ground zero to the money, terror, and image-driven paradigm which has replaced the Cold War.

    The story depicts the rise of Babylen Tatarsky through Russia’s nascent advertising business, and his parallel initiation into the ancient cult of Ishtar, queen of all that glitters in the film’s hallucinogenic brave new world. We also meet Che Guevara, a fiery dragon with bad news about TV, and a chauffeur with a marked resemblance to Putin, who is elected president.

    Generation P is a riddle, a farce, a romance about the ecstasy of disintegration, and an obscene joke about the end of the world.

    The film is pretty good as an illustration to the novel as it faithfully follows the original script, but it will not work on the audience which hasn't seen it. To understand the often sophisticated postmodernist gags and puns in the movie and the book, you've got to know Russian very well, have firsthand knowledge of the "mad 90ies" with their iconic symbols and memes. Add the knowledge of ancient religious doctrines and authors like Castaneda to the whole set of ingredients, and you'll possibly be able to grasp 80% of what's happening on the screen. I'm wondering what kind of audience the film's American producers are expecting.

      "...hey, Billybob...whut's this movie about?"

      So I guess this film would not really be appreciated in the red states?
