Product Description

A haunting, violent tale of a youth lost in an uncaring world, Bullet Collector is the first film from promising director Alexander Vartanov. A visual, moody masterpiece, the drama follows the traumas of a wide-eyed 14-year-old boy. He has a terrible home life with a step-father who can barely stand the sight of him. His school life is even worse as bullies torment and attack him with shocking regularity And his life becomes even more torturous after he is sent to hellish reform school. Prone to day-dreaming about a life where he is loved, fights off his attackers and has a beautiful girlfriend, the reality of an entirely different and terrible life continually shocks his back to reality. Is he just a timid kid destined for abuse or will he gain the strength to fight off his attackers? Recalling the world of Antoine Doinel in François Truffaut s The 400 Blows, this unsettling, visually brilliant drama updates that classic by giving it a nightmarishly Russian spin.

I love this piece like I love a dark, cold work of classical music. It's something vast and true, and one must love it if one loves the cinema of pain and violence. It is a visionary film. The images are hypnotic. It's in black and white and there's one scene where our hero's blood falls onto a white, wet surface, and we just focus for perhaps two whole minutes on the water lapping up against the drops of blood, sculpting them into strange, moving shapes that seem alive and somehow tragic.
My interpretation of this movie is that the boy is a serious schizophrenic who lives in a tragically violent imaginary world. This idea dawned on me slowly. Because we basically experience the movie from inside his head, it doesn't matter what's real and what isn't. He can't tell the difference, why should we? Going in with that attitude makes it much more fun to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't let this opportunity slip by... June 9, 2013

Not to all tastes but for those who have a true love of truth in cinema, this is a must-see. I'll stop just short of calling anyone who sees it and does not like it a dunderhead. When an opportunity comes along to see a lean, no-nonsense piece of art, take that opportunity. Highly recommended.
