This is definitely worth seeing whether you're a fan yet or not. It's a little light on the actual political message of their art - and papers over some of the complexities - but it does allow us to hear directly from Masha, Nadia and Katia. It's pretty funny too (cause they're very funny people).There's a great (maybe a bit staged) scene in which some of their so-called victims, the 'offended' Orthodox Church members, discuss the meaning of Pussy Riot and its literal translation.
The scene in the court where you hear their closing remarks is almost breathtaking (I think I shed tears at Masha's).Spoilers:
There's generally a lot of misunderstanding about Pussy Riot and imo too much emphasis on their trial, important as it is, and the humanitarian aspect. FREE PUSSY RIOT means a lot more than getting two people out of the penal camp.I reckon the films missing an interview with Žižek; perhaps along similar lines to his appearance in this documentary about Laibach
The movie also totally fails to address the issue of Nadia's husband being a goon and actually gives him a platform to further misrepresent them.
I'd be interested to hear your thoughts cause I think they're fucking cool.
