This wide-ranging collection investigates the father/son dynamic in post-Stalinist Soviet cinema and its Russian successor. Contributors analyze complex patterns of identification, disavowal, and displacement in films by such diverse directors as Khutsiev, Motyl', Tarkovsky, Balabanov, Sokurov, Todorovskii, Mashkov, and Bekmambetov. Several chapters focus on the difficulties of fulfilling the paternal function, while others show how vertical and horizontal male bonds are repeatedly strained by the pressure of redefining an embattled masculinity in a shifting political landscape.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The eleven articles in this anthology provide insightful studies of the Oedipal dynamics dramatized in diverse films beginning in the immediate post-Stalin period." -SEER


"This volume truly offers a feast of intellectual delights and many of its essays lend themselves excellently to incorporation in reading lists for a wide range of courses on Soviet and post-Soviet cinema, and culture more broadly." -Studies in Russian and Soviet Cinema, 12/7/10


"Helena Goscilo and Yana Hashamova's collection of essays is a most welcome addition to the existing literature on Russian cinema.... The volume will no doubt find wide application in university courses." -Slavic Review, Summer 2011, Vol. 70, no. 2


"A valuable contribution to the literature on Soviet/Russian film.... Recommended." -Choice, September 2010, Vol. 48 No. 1


"A solid contribution to the fields of Soviet and post-Soviet studies, bringing to light a new understanding of post-Stalinist cinema." -Lilya Kaganovsky, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign


"[This] volume is a must-read for film and cultural studies scholars for two reasons: first, the collection addresses a major, vexed sociocultural issue over time; second, this basket of articles-all solid, some exceptional-provides new approaches to a number of important Soviet and Russian films." -The Russian Review
