Rasputin: Dark Servant of Destiny (1996)
Rasputin, the Russian mesmerist known as the mad monk, is profiled in this HBO drama. His relationship with the Romanovs and his apparently visionary predictions made him a legend, but was he anything greater than his own illusions? Winner of several Emmys and three Golden Globes, including Best Television Movie or Miniseries, Best Actor ~ Alan Rickman, and Best Supporting Actor ~ Ian McKellan.
An excellent film, the video has been recently viewed and plays very well. Apparently any DVDs of this film are bootleg as it has not been officially released on that format.
