What I’ve been up to...

The Needle/Игла (1988)

Lately I’ve been watching a lot of Kazakh movies. Re-watched the film, The Needle/Игла (1988).

The Needle is a film by Rashid Nugmanov that takes place in my hometown, Almaty. It stars Viktor Tsoi, the Korean-Soviet frontman of the popular rock group Kino!
