Russia and 'Leviathan'

‘Leviathan’ Review | Washington Free Beacon

'It’s not terribly surprising that a nation headed by a former KGB officer is cracking down on freedom of expression following the runaway critical success of a film that delivers body blow after body blow to the Russian “constitutional order.” Leviathan is half-anti-bureaucratic farce, half-classic-Russian-tragedy, equally interested in the drab lives of its vodka-besotted subjects and in the political commingling of the state, the Russian Orthodox Church, and the oligarchy.'

Any Russophiles out there familiar with this film?
