An essay analyzing the themes of the 1994 Russian movie "Burnt by the Sun", in which I examine the Soviet attempt to create utopia and the failure to which all utopian projects are doomed. From my 20th Century Russian Culture class, written in May 2019. Probably received an A but I forget. Anyway I liked the movie and was proud of my work. Posted with minimal edits.
Written for "Russian War in Film" in 2011
