In the late eighties and early nineties, Aki Kaurismäki, the master of the deadpan, fashioned a waggish fish-out-of-water tale about a U.S. tour by "the worst rock-and-roll band in the world." Leningrad Cowboys Go America's posse of fur-coated, outrageously pompadoured hipsters struck such a chord with international audiences that the fictional band became a genuine attraction, touring the world. Later, Kaurismäki created a sequel, Leningrad Cowboys Meet Moses, and filmed a gigantic stadium show the band put on in Helsinki for the rollicking documentary Total Balalaika Show. With this Eclipse series, we present these crackpot musical and comic odysseys, along with five Leningrad Cowboys music videos directed by Kaurismäki.

  • Includes Leningrad Cowboys Go America, Leningrad Cowboys Meet Moses, and Total Balalaika Show
  • Music Videos for "Rocky VI", "Thru the Wire", "L.A. Woman", "These Boots", and "Those Were the Days"
