The second in Alexander Sokurov’s teratology of films concerning twentieth century dictators, Taurus is a poetic and partially factual film of the last days of Russian revolutionary, Vladimir Ulyanov ‘Lenin’.
Holed up in the country and cared for by a determined doctor, his wife and a group of uniformed guardsmen, Lenin muses over his life with the ambiguity and vagueness of the old man that he is. With moments of extreme clarity and ramblings both poetic and pathetic, he unwittingly illuminates the state of contemporary Russia (and beyond?) and questions how man negotiates his place in the world.
