An epic pseudo-autobiographical prose poem, Moscow-Pietushki is one of the masterpieces of the samizdat literature of the Soviet era, grassroots dissident writing circulated through underground channels. Released after the Revolutions of 1989, Pawlikowski’s documentary films the dying author and follows in the footsteps of his protagonist, finding traces of the author in the memory of passengers, as well as a raucous, inebriate Russia.
