Plot synopsis
A Molotov cocktail of gruesome carnage, eccentric characters, and off-beat humor, Dead Man's Bluff casts a bracingly cynical eye on recent Eastern European history. Director Alexei Balabanov uses "uniformly ace" (Variety) cameo performances, by Russia's most prominent actors, to send up both the greed-is-good mentality of the newly democratized former Soviet Union and the self-conscious Tarantino/Guy Ritchie-style crime films of the 90's. This ferocious farce suggest that on the mean free-market streets of modern day Russia, the only real liberty is the freedom to kill.
