What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Red Army is a documentary directed by Russian-American Gabe Polsky about the Soviet Union's legendary national ice hockey team from the '70s and '80s. It has extensive interviews (in English and subtitled Russian) with the most famous members of the Soviet team, particularly the legendary Russian Five, including Slava Fetisov, Alexei Kasatonov, Vladimir Krutov, and hall-of-famer goalkeeper Vladislav Tretiak. The interviewees' language infrequently includes variations on the word "s--t" (shown in subtitles), and some of the hockey footage shows violent confrontations and plays -- even blood on the ice. But otherwise this is a fascinating documentary for any hockey, sports, or history fan.
