Russia, United States | 2011 | Victor Ginzburg
A poor Russian poet turns powerful advertising man in this hallucinatory, surreal fantasy that captures the chaotic rush to capitalism and consumerism that seized the former Soviet Union in the 1990s after the fall of Communism. From Victor Pelevin’s 1999 cult novel. “Generation P is long and incredibly dense, but it's never boring—it’s too wild and unhinged.” –Village Voice.
