Russian Transport

2hr. 30min. (1 intermission)


Something Got Lost In This "Transport"

Although well set and well acted, with an outstanding performance by Morgan Spector as the sinister Uncle Boris, "Russian Transport" suffers from flimsy construct and a tepid presentation of such dark material. Everything seems to be too ho-hum rather than suspenseful. The characters are too trite. Where this could have been a superior drama recreating the plight of immigrants pursuing the American dream, and the lenghs they would go to achieve it, it ultimately ends up like a weak cup of chai or a watered down bottle of vodka.
