I've seen a couple Russian period pieces about the times of the Golden Horde and how those evil Asians were so mean to the Christian Whites in Moscova. Interesting for the history aspect, but biased.

Russia and China are incapable of self depreciation or humor. We took Kung Fu Panda and sold Chinese culture back to China...it was successful there...and a lot of Chinese were wondering how we did it. The truth is, if it had been a Chinese movie, the censors would have stricken any and all weakness, doubt and vulnerability from Po's character, in an effort to make him a heroic personification of how the CCP see's China. In other words, their insecure nationalism would have ruined it.

Ditto anything from Russia.

I've watched more than a few Russian movies.
They are all pretty dark, and emo.

I've seen a couple of Russia superhero movies that were fun.  Definitely B or C tier, but fun.

I think the trick is to produce movies the people in power don't care about, which is going to basically eliminate art that includes social commentary.

Those thin skinned babies also banned The Death of Stalin.

Know how I know you don't subscribe to the Criterion Channel? Russians have been making classic films since the birth of film. Night Watch and Day Watch turn up on cable every October, and Sputnik, a terrific sci-fi/horror film, is currently showing on Hulu.
