Agony: The Life and Death of Rasputin

1982 Rated NR 2hr 22m

This depiction of Rasputin and his effect on the Russian ruling class doesn't skimp on decadence, violence and depravity. Aleksei Petrenko stars as the mad monk who became a confidant to Czar Nicholas II and helped push Russia into World War I. Banned in Russia for a decade for painting an unflattering portrait of the royal family, Agony has since been recognized as a powerful political drama. Elem Klimov directs.
