1. The Cranes Are Flying
2. The Letter Never Sent
3. I Am Cuba

4. The Red Tent
5. The First Echelon


Would like to see more, but more than that I want to see more by cinematographer Sergei Urusevsky, who deserves much of the credit for making these films as astonishing as they are.

Love 'em both.  Urusevsky and Kalatozov make a great team.

I prefer Cranes to Cuba. Didn't care for Salt.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

I have been unable to find The Letter Never Spent, which upset me greatly, if anyone knows PM.
Iíve lied to men who wear belts. Iíve lied to men who wear suspenders. But Iíd never be so stupid as to lie to a man who wears both a belt and suspenders.
