Russian Ark – Update

Right. So the other day I fell asleep watching this movie. I missed the last 1/2 hour and I’m not really interested in going back and watching it.

There were too many reference to Russian history that I have no idea about. Also, the topic, which I should have guessed, was ‘Russianess’. I’m pretty indifferent to what it means to be Russian. I suppose it has importance and it could have an impact on geopolitics, but I’m just not into it. Oh, well.

Christopher Hitchens writes about Britishness in this month’s Atlantic. He tries his damnedest to make it interesting to the rest of us non-Britons, but in the end its not interesting to hear about “others'” identities when your knee deep in trying to figure out what you’re all about.

HOWEVER, there’s a small chance that the movie sparked an interest in Russian history…
