I watch a lot of movies in Russian (with English subtitles when my wife watches with me) and 90% of the time subtitles are just fucking awful, neutered, and dumbed-down, probably due to onscreen speed. It would be cool to see if any native speaking people saw the movie and weighed in on the dialogue. I'm sure in a movie like that dialogue could make or break the movie experience.

Also, I'm yet to see Hollywood movie where character pretends to be fluent in Russian and be comprehensible, c'mon, they spend months on a single fight choreography but can't get a decent language coach.
Book Illustrator and definitely human.
