A portrait of the punk, the Russian Forrest Gump, the poet, the professional revolutionary, the ultra-nationalist party leader.

Limonov is the true story of the decline and fall of a man who once seemed poised to become the next great émigré writer, but ended up being a petty politician, an extreme nationalist. It is the fictional memoir of a poet who saw himself as a hero but in fact is just a scumbag. It is the portrait of the thug as sentimentalist, one that reveals a violence, an anarchy, a brutality, that the stories we tell ourselves about progress tend to conceal.
