The Road Movie (2016)
Director: Dmitrii Kalashnikov
Before I read some of the reviews for this movie, I had no idea that Russian dashcam videos were a thing.
They appeal to the worst in human nature: titillation at another’s misfortune and, perhaps, the tentative hope that we might see a little blood.
There is no blood in “The Road Movie,” but there are some car crashes that are so severe that the occupants must have suffered life-long, if not mortal, injuries.
At least it is short at just over an hour.
I did feel that it provides some sense of the lives of average Russians, however inadvertent that result may have been.
But I don’t see why we need movies like this when we already have YouTube.
