Product Description:

When three faceless corpses are discovered in Moscow's Gorky Park, the Moscow militia's top investigator, Arkady Renko (William Hurt), is assigned to the case. An honest Soviet official, Renko uncovers a murky and dangerous plot involving sinister KGB agents, the corrupt Soviet government, and a powerful American businessman. Although many of the Russians in the film speak with an English accent (all the dialogue is in English), GORKY PARK proves to be a provocative, fast-paced thriller that captures all of the intrigue and suspense in Martin Cruz Smith's best-selling novel of the same name. Director Michael Apted handled the thriller genre before in SQUEEZE and AGATHA, and the experience shows in GORKY PARK; there are so many twists and turns in the plot, viewers are constantly kept off balance. A supporting cast of Lee Marvin, Brian Dennehy, and Joanna Pacula (in her first starring role) back up Hurt with solid performances.

Plot Synopsis:

After three mutilated bodies are discovered in the snow in Moscow's Gorky Park, the chief investigator of the Moscow militia is assigned to the case. This provocative, fast-paced thriller was based on the #1 best-seller by Martin Cruz Smith.

Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: December 16, 1983.
  • Shot on location in Helsinki, Finland.
  • Martin Cruz Smith came up with the idea for GORKY PARK in 1972 after reading about a book called THE FACE FINDER by Mikhail Gerasimov, about scientists' efforts to reconstruct faces from unidentifiable remains. Gerasimov reconstructed the face of Tamerlane, as depicted in Michael Apted's film.
  • The film features one of Lee Marvin's final screen appearances.
  • The screenplay was written by the late, great Dennis Potter of THE SINGING DETECTIVE fame.
