Though dashboard cameras originally became ubiquitous in Mother Russia as a means of legal documentation in insurance cases, they've become a source of morbid entertainment for millions online, capturing an endless procession of accidents and odd encounters with a static, dispassionate eye. Formed entirely of such dashcam footage, The Road Movie must be seen to be believed (and even then...), alternating beautiful wintry landscape footage with the perils such driving entails: sledgehammer-wielding road-ragers, falling meteors, and a whole host of other kaleidoscopic calamities.
