Agony: The Life and Death of Rasputin

Movie Summary

Director:
Elem Klimov
Released:
1975
Rating:
Not Available
Under the direction of celebrated filmmaker Elem Klimov, Aleksei Petrenko delivers a ferociously over-the-top performance as Grigory Rasputin, the wandering Siberian monk whose messianic influence upon Russia's monarch led its people, like lambs to the slaughter, blind and headlong into World War I, setting the stage for revolution. Anything but a standard bio-pic, AGONY is an unrestrained assault on the ruling class in Russia, whose religious hedonism and political ignorance nearly destroyed the country.
