SovietMoviesOnline.com is a pretty amazing site. It streams rare and classic movies made in the USSR, all either dubbed or subtitled into English. Breaking the films down into genre, it's got a remarkable section devoted to Soviet science fiction.This is packed with well-loved works such as Solaris and Stalker, alongside more obscure films, such as the bizarre cyberpunk comedy/drama Kin-Dza-Dza, a film that's part Terry Gilliam fantasy, part fatalist rumination, and all excellent.
If yuou can put aside any trepidation about cheap special effects, and often surreal plots that eschew Hollywood convention, there's plenty to love here - least of which being the amazing cover designs- check out some of these posters:
