  • Summary: Ardak Amirkulov's 1990 historical epic about the intrigue and turmoil preceding Genghis Khan's systematic destruction of the lost east Asian civilization. (Film Society of Lincoln Center)

  1. 70
    Has an edge of cynicism and cruelty that just as often suggests the spaghetti westerns of Sergio Leone.
  2. 70
    At 165 minutes this is a pretty long haul, and the shifting alliances mapped out in the dark and claustrophobic first part can be difficult to follow; the payoff comes in the second part, which opens out into dramatic locations and bloody battle as the Mongols lay siege to Otrar.
  3. 60
    Enigmatic from the get-go, The Fall of Otrar builds to a series of spectacular battle scenes, but the mood is never less than sardonic.
