This book examines the oeuvre of Russian director Alexander Sokurov. Sokurov has kept his audiences intrigued, enthralled, confused, and even angered at times, with a cinema that is all at once incredibly diverse and yet immediately recognizable as bearing the seal of its maker. Its outward components are well known, whether revered or derided: Sokurov's cinema is a delicate but difficult exploration of the human conscience and soul, of memory, destiny and history, be it in its fictional or documentary form. This book explores the anxiety of influence of twentieth-century art, death, and homosexuality in Sokurov's feature films, including Lonely Voice of Man, Mournful Insensitivity, Days of the Eclipse, The Second Circle, Taurus, Father and Son, and Faust.

Keywords:   feature film, Russia, director, Alexander Sokurov, cinema, human conscience, art, death, homosexuality, Lonely Voice of Man
