White Sun of the Desert" Movie Review
The movies White Sun of the Desert is about the Red Army Soldier facing bandit in the central Asia during a civil war. The dynamic between soviet east and west is presented in the movie whereby the western cliches are transposed into a Soviet setting. Instead of using the cowboy, the protagonist is a Red Army soldier. Instead of portraying the usual war scenes that occur among states, a common occurrence during the Russian revolution, the movie uses Indians and bandits like Basmichi, the Turkmen rebels.
