Although they have a rich heritage, the Russians' film output has not traveled well. I must have seen fewer than 20, and I have seen a lot of stuff. And yes, I fell asleep to ALL the Tarkovskys, so naturally I have left them out.

i am slightly better at russian novelists, but that's becuz my ma was a freak for em. my ma had the cynical side that was all "suffering is the origin of consciousness" or whatever the orginal quote is. my ma was not exactly tiptoe-thru-the-tulips, i however, was. mwhaha.

let's just say i was and am a mix.

If you can pinpoint the greatest novelist of all, Dostoyevsky would be a good choice, I think. I have only read "Crime and Punishment", but I landed on his complete works in Danish translation, and they are now sitting on my bookshelf, just waiting to be read.
