WAR AND PEACE (1965-67) by Sergei Bondarchuk 
PART I: ANDREI BOLKONSKY, 140 min. 
 
War and Peace is a sprawling 6.5-hour Soviet historic drama adapted from Leo Tolstoy's 1869 novel that replicates of the comings and goings of Moscow's upper crust in the Napoleonic Era, the movements of armies over a seven-year period, and the author's endless musing on the nature of historical inquiry and the question of free will vs. historical determinism. Rated 100% by Rotten Tomatoes, the massive epic is something akin to a Russian Gone with the Wind re-interpreted by director Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rogue).
