Dmitrii Kalashnikov
1h 7m


A mosaic of asphalt adventures, landscape photography, and some of the craziest s**t you’ve ever seen, Dmitrii Kalashnikov’s The Road Movie is a stunning compilation of video footage shot exclusively via the deluge of dashboard cameras that populate Russian roads. The epitome of a you-have-to-see-it-to-believe-it documentary, The Road Movie captures a wide range of spectacles through the windshield—including a comet crashing down to Earth, an epic forest fire, and no shortage of angry motorists taking road rage to wholly new and unexpected levels—all accompanied by bemused commentary from unseen and often stoic drivers and passengers.



“If you are as addicted to the YouTube genre of Russian dashcam videos as I am, you will not want to miss The Road Movie. It has everything you want to see and much more: a person popping out of a truck, a cow flying through the air, a car plunging into a river, a man falling from the sky with a parachute, an asteroid exploding in the sky. The drug many of these clips provide is the rip between the normal and the nuts. One moment, the world has its shit together; the next moment, it does not.”Charles Mudede, The Stranger
