I see this as Zvyagintsev pointing the corruption all the way to the top. Which is interesting since 35% of the films funding is from the Russian minsitry of culture.

But they themselves have had a change of heart. From WikiVladimir Medinsky, Minister of Culture, acknowledged that the film showed talented moviemaking but said he does not like it. He has proposed guidelines which would ban movies which defile national culture.
