Rating: 4/5 -- A cinematic behemoth, an unshakable monochrome nightmare of squelching bodily discharges that inhabits a world so noxious you can almost smell the pungent deterioration of humanity as it spews forth from the screen. Full Review

The roiling setting alone enforces a medieval mind-set that feels genuine: brutal yet often jovially rambunctious and crude, pre-psychological in its sense of the cheapness of life and yet rich with local custom and detail.

[A]n extreme case of visionary film, and as much a delirium as a movie in any customary sense.
Film Comment

[German] is probably the most important Russian filmmaker to remain more or less completely unknown in the United States, and HARD TO BE A GOD is the movie he spent almost his entire career trying to get made and the last decade of his life trying to finish.

This is hardcore art-house cinema and not for the impatient or squeamish, but many images and performances keep haunting you afterwards. Full Review
