Movie: Gorky Park


I found this to be a pretty cheesy melodrama. I wonder how much I was influenced by the dated 80’s soundtrack. The movie uses a format that may have inspired today’s CSI TV shows, rebuilding the crime as the investigators learn more. Maybe today’s higher gore tolerance and flashy special effects reduce some of the impact that Gorky Park had in 1983. And lastly, there probably really were soap opera stories like this in Cold War Era Russia. Maybe my historical separation from that period makes the stories seem over-dramatic. Obviously, I’m more interested in my reaction to the movie than the movie itself…
