Dostoyevsky + Tolkien?

Russia's cult video pirate rescripts Lord of the Rings as gangster film.

A Russian DVD pirate has taken the Lord of the Rings movies and rewritten them in Russian:
In a move that has taken the Russian pirate disk world by storm and infuriated traditionalists and copyright lawyers, Puchkov has completely changed the script, turning the 'good' characters, like Frodo, into bumbling Russian cops, and the 'bad' Orcs into Russian gangsters.

That's pretty damn amusing. I wouldn't mind hearing an English language version of that...
