This mesmerizing account of 15th century Russian monk Andrei Rublev follows the icon painter as he faces violence, political persecution and, eventually, a crisis of faith after leaving the monastery to paint Vladimir Cathedral's interior. The Soviets suppressed this sweeping epic -- widely recognized as a cinematic masterpiece -- and did not allow it to be seen as director Andrei Tarkovsky intended until more than 20 years after completion.
