Moscow On The Hudson (Blu-ray)

We no longer offer this title for sale, this listing is here for reference. Screen Archives still carries a wide selection of Twilight Time titles.
Writer-director Paul Mazursky’s brilliant comic take on a very contemporary subject – immigration – Moscow on the Hudson (1984) focuses on Vladimir Ivanoff (Robin Williams, in a performance that combines the funny, the poignant, and the purely intelligent to fantastic effect), a Russian musician who defects while on a group tour through Bloomingdale’s. His travails – and those of the many fellow immigrants and new Americans he meets along the way – ultimately constitute a heartfelt tribute to America’s endangered open door policy. Also featuring wonderful turns from Maria Conchita Alonso, Cleavant Derricks, Alejandro Rey, Elya Baskin, and Savely Kramarov.
