Gabe Polsky did not set out to make a movie for hockey fans. The real subject of his documentary “Red Army,” he said, is the breakup of the Soviet Union.
But when Polsky starts talking about the hockey in his film, he becomes passionate, even choked up. What the audience sees in “Red Army” is a hockey of unsurpassed grace, speed and intricacy played by the Soviets in the 1970s and ’80s.
“What they did was a creative renaissance in sport which is almost unmatched to this day,” said Polsky, whose movie begins a limited run in New York on Friday before its nationwide release in January. “They approached it not just from a scientific point of view, but philosophically. Their training borrowed from dance, chess, literature, circus, painting, art. It was not just about winning and losing; it was artistry, a beautiful religious experience. That’s what I was so passionate about.”
