It’s sex and drugs and rock & roll in Kirill Serebrennikov’s raucous phantasmagorical biopic centred on Viktor Tsoy who managed to buck soviet censors to become one of that country’s underground New Wave sensations à la Blondie, Bowie, and Lou Reed. Focused more on the legend rather than the man, Serebrennikov’s grungy B&W vision of a 1980s Leningrad teeming with clean-cut groupies, chain-smoking artistes, and uptight town councils is enhanced by a kick-ass soundtrack and unexpected flights of fancy in which the everyday is transformed into a series of surreal music videos complete with edgy animation and babushkas singing back-up. And just to add a touch of mock gravitas one of Tsoy’s cronies repeatedly breaks the fourth wall in order to inform us that “..this never happened…” Features ultimate renditions of The Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer” and David Bowie’s “All The Young Dudes”. Rock on comrade!
