what's to say......... a truly off the wall, out there, gutbustingly funny series. the Leningrad cowboys put the Stones, the Beatles and some other high falutin bands to shame.

Great films but disappointing picture quality Feb. 27 2012
By John Chandler - Published on Amazon.com
I have these in the Finnish language releases. They are terrific cult films and hilarious to watch. Unfortunately the Criterion transfers are below par, the picture is soft and the colors weak. The Finnish PAL releases are noticably better. Only in the subtitles do Criterion excell. They offer the choice of full subtitles whereas the Finns only subtitle the Finnish language parts. As visitors to Finland will know the Finnish accent is a bit different and the Criterion titles do help.

FOR "GO AMERICA" FILM: A mixed bag at best but certainly an interesting Finnish/Russian antidote to The Blues Brothers March 14 2013
By Visual Bureau - Published on Amazon.com
"Above all, a very muted, subdued, and dry experience in its own right but stylistically intriguing as a whole. After viewing Kaurismaki's Le Havre, his most recent cinematic effort, Leningrad Cowboys, along with Ariel and Juha, is considered one of his most notable works during his career. First off, the film deals with a Russian folk music band touring the United States after losing a contract and fan-base in their home country.

The film, despite its potential snafus to certain audiences, is neither pro-Communist nor spoken in Russian or Finnish (given the director's homeland) with English subtitles but in seldom-used, broken English for the most part with some Mexican Spanish. Aside from that, the stylistic factor is notified by its distant humour and dialogue where much of the comedy and irony comes from the small things they say and the mildly zany things (particularly tame material for a PG-13 film) they do like leave a member of their band to be in a bed of ice with his bass guitar, look at pictures of elderly Russian women out of romantic feelings, or revolt against their secretly greedy band leader. Le Havre, in comparison, is a little more obvious and timed precisely than Leningrad's more freeform aspects.

While the film can be seen at parts as purely hilarious (in a dry manner), the whole film is too spare and slow to be considered a classic or re-watchable especially in the YouTube era of fast-paced comedy. Interesting effort in cross-continental cinema but not entirely a glourious cult effort that The Criterion Collection puts it out as."
