Aleksei Balabanov directed the blockbuster noir Brat/ Brother (1997), a grim portrait of amorality in post-Soviet Russia, but also the pessimistic and allegorical Pro Urodov i Lyudey/ Of Freaks and Men (1998), photographed by Sergei Astakhov, set at the turn of the 20th century in the early days of photography about a perverted pornographer/photographer, and a Kafka-esque quasi-horror caricature of the Soviet era in Gruz 200/ Cargo 200 (2007), photographed again by Sergei Astakhov.
