Okraina 1998
A group of Russian farmers discover that their land has been sold for oil excavation without their knowledge and go on a rampage of torture and killing to extract more information from party officials...

A peculiar and fascinating mixture of deadpan comedy, postmodern revenge fantasy, and retro-'30s Soviet propaganda film, Petr Lutsik's Outskirts journeys through the contemporary Russian landscape as it might have been viewed by early-20th-century peasants or a Death Wish-era Charles Bronson. The collision of styles and messages makes it hard to decipher Lutsik's intentions at any given point, but the confusion adds depth and off-kilter humor to his critique of newly capitalist Russia and the fresh round of injustices visited upon the common man.
