Mikhail Khodorkovsky is charismatic and mercurial. It's not difficult to see why Alex Gibney chose him as the focus of his new film. After thriving in Russia in the 1990s and amassing incredible wealth from the oil industry, Mikhail Khodorkovsky became a nuisance to Vladimir Putin, who subsequently had him jailed in Siberia for ten years. Now living in exile in the UK, he orchestrates a far-reaching anti-Putin campaign. Through this story, Alex Gibney charts Vladimir Putin's rise to power, the golden years of the oligarchs and an era of gangster capitalism, combining archive footage and interviews with various journalists and Mikhail Khodorkovsky himself. Unfolding like a gripping political thriller, Citizen K (2019) is an urgent and topical account of a culture dominated by fake news and the rise of Russia's alleged meddling in politics beyond its borders.

This is the documentary about the artist Wes Anderson and his landmark film THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO which was nominated for 11 Oscars. Anderson is a very generous person and given that he turned his wife into his muse and took that sort of intimate nature in his movies, he is worth all the praise he's received. It's a touching tale of his work, his life and his relationship with his wife. The majority of the documentary is a interview with many of his friends, acquaintances and family. I also loved the star interviews, which were insightful and unique. Anderson has achieved a level of notoriety that is unparalleled. To have done such a thing and not have any formal training in cinema would not have been possible in Anderson's position. He might have been the best director of his generation, but it was the story behind his work that makes him very special. Anderson has successfully changed the face of cinema for better or worse and if you love art, you will like this film.

Romeo & Juliet (2005) was a fascinating film about an important literary character in American history. It was also about major historical events, but it was more about how the people of the country felt about this subject matter. The film showed great cinematography and an amazing soundtrack. The plot focuses on the play and all the emotions and drama that went into the production. The film was also great in showing the various personalities of the people involved, each in a different way. A well done documentary.

The great thing about this film is that it is clear to the viewer in advance what is going to happen next. I was really impressed by how straight forward the film is. If I could, I would give the film a perfect ten. This film is very educational, and if you are already interested in the French Revolution then you definitely need to see this film. It goes way beyond a glorification of the past by turning the primary narrative on its head. I think it is a great lesson for everyone about the things which made a powerful revolution possible. There are some very funny lines, which are used in this documentary to challenge the notions about being in the camp with the "oppressed" at the time. I'm interested to see the film which came out soon after.

It is well documented that the State Department has always given the green light to the invasion of Iraq. All the evidence is there in one form or another. There is much evidence against Saddam Hussein, but most of the evidence is internal, and it is not made public. This movie gives a documentary style presentation of the proof. It is a well put together film. It shows the inconsistencies of the evidence in detail. The film provides additional evidence to show the validity of the evidence provided by the US government. The documentary style presentation has the effect of making the audience engaged. As the film progresses, the viewer becomes less and less critical. It is my opinion that the information presented in the film can be considered more as an indictment of the Bush administration than as an attack on the President or any one particular person.

I agree with everyone's review, it is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. It is a story about Native Americans and their culture. It shows how they protect and defend their land. They believe that the food they produce is for everyone and their neighbors to eat. They are so peaceful and respectful of others, they do not want to be rude and arrogant. They are so nice and considerate, especially when people are not so kind. I did not know this culture, I was only told that it was peaceful and respectful. My cousin and I went to Hawaii to watch the Hula Boa Festival, and I thought it was very respectful of the natives and they showed that. In other words, the Hula Boa Festival in Hawaii taught me about the Hawaiian culture and the way they lived. I learned so much about this culture and my cousin learned about this culture from this documentary. It is really touching and a good story about protecting and defending their land. I like how the director speaks to Native American people and how they defend their land, and they protect their land.

This is what history is all about. I am a Canadian citizen and it was extremely important to me to watch this documentary. I am so glad I did. This film brought back memories of the old WWII and reminded me of my own parents. I am proud to have my children in the United States and I am thankful to see my country prosper and grow. I would like to see a new world filled with prosperity and progress for all. This film is a great example of how history is being made and how our young people are being shaped for the future.

I have watched this film 3 times in the last two days. I was so impressed with the film that I want to go and see it again. I was very impressed by the film. I love the way it was filmed, the fact that it was a documentary, and the way it was put together. I also really liked the fact that it was filmed in a way that was not the usual way that documentaries are shot. I think that it was a very interesting and informative film. I would recommend this film to anyone who wants to see a documentary that is more of a film about the world, rather than about a person or a group of people. I think that it is a film that you should watch.

This film is an introduction to every boxing fan in the United States who has not been in a boxing ring. It describes everything, from his background to the sport, and makes it clear that the people who participate in the sport are the real heroes in this story. The story is entertaining, but I would have liked to see more people included. It is clear that the majority of people don't understand the sport of boxing, but this film explains the facts of the sport to everyone. I highly recommend it.

I just want to say that this was an excellent documentary about documentary and what documentary makers do. By and large we know them as the guys sitting in their offices with their fancy computers, but that is because documentaries are made by and for these people. It is a "must-watch" documentary that I wish I could recommend to everyone. The topics covered in this are timeless, and seem quite fresh today. Many people do not know that this type of "documentary" is made by a regular person with limited resources and a shoestring budget. In my experience, documentaries that become bestsellers or "must-watch" documentaries are also a rare commodity. I think it is a tribute to the people who make them that this documentary is such a classic. I am happy to see that someone actually went and put money and time into making it.

I found this movie to be a very powerful and informative film. I felt like I was watching a documentary. It was a very interesting look at the life of one man who suffered a great loss, but the film did not make him out to be a hero. I think it was a good representation of the many people who are affected by this tragedy. I think the film did a great job in showing the problems and the hardships of the people who live in the communities affected by the oil spill. I would recommend this film to anyone who wants to know more about the issues surrounding the oil spill.

I first saw this film in 1998, and was very impressed. I was never a big fan of the teen slasher genre, but the film was very original and well-made. I still watch it occasionally, and I just recently watched it again for the first time in over 20 years. I don't recall any particular scenes I was particularly impressed with, but I did enjoy the entire film. It's a very intriguing look into the lives of some of the most disturbing characters in history. The film is also very well-made, with some of the best cinematography I've ever seen. The music is also very good. There are some very sad scenes in the film, but I was able to overlook that, because the entire film is very moving. The film is also very disturbing, and I think that's why it is so popular. It also is a very good film. This is a very important film, and it's a very good film. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. 9/10

Finally got around to seeing this on DVD, and I was surprised that it really seemed to stick with me. I have a very simple definition of "film" as the visualisation of a real event. Not a documentary but the direct recollection of the experience. This film gets it. The archive footage, the interviews, the documentary format. Why this hasn't been seen before, it is astonishing. Much of it is highly enjoyable and interesting. Much of it is painful and very shocking. In fact it is more painful to listen to than to watch. This isn't about the politics and ideology. It is about real people who have found themselves caught up in a tragedy that was never thought of or planned. Sometimes this is a hard film to watch. The pace is deliberate, the narrative tight. Very few interviews are off-camera, and that can sometimes work against the sheer determination to get it through to the end. Some stuff is deliberately written out. These things aside, the documentary format is really interesting. It gives the film the power and power of a story. With one caveat. Sometimes it does take an expert to get the film. The film itself is very good. The issues and actions taken are portrayed in an exemplary manner and only the former (interviewees) can really get it. Also some other stuff has to be said. Certainly many of the interviews were well done, but a few others did not. This does not detract from the overall experience. In fact it helps to understand the context of the discussion. It is difficult to explain without sounding patronising but I can only say this: it is rare to see a film, especially a documentary, that completely upsets the audience and disturbs their sense of normal. This is the case with this film. Most of the original interviewees came out of their own ideological convictions, and the subject matter is extreme. These can lead to things that are very hard to watch. Others, like former prisoner Matthew Taylor, find it hard to watch. Taylor is a very ordinary man. He may come across as normal but he is a very tortured man. Many of his actions might seem like those of a normal person. But he is in prison. He has to go through a great deal of mental abuse. It is a bizarre thing to see him like this. And yet his interviews are at times captivating. He expresses himself very naturally. He seems to want the world to know what he is going through. He is relaxed and easy to listen to. I really like the documentary format. It makes it more accessible. I don't want to come across as one who has an easy time watching films but this is a very tough film to watch. This is all the better because it can be uncomfortable. The abuse is graphic and disturbing. But this isn't for everyone. This is very unpleasant and harrowing and it is hard to watch. But it is extremely powerful.

I found this documentary quite interesting, it also has the feel of an opinion piece. It is based on a book by an investigative journalist called Frank Jannet who in the 70's investigated the Mau Mau murders in Kenya. He interviewed many people involved in the murder, and the documentary is mostly about their testimony. He concludes that the murder was carried out by the British government, as a part of the secret plan to colonize Kenya. After the documentary the narrator starts to criticise the British government, saying that they are very arrogant and arrogant towards their people and they think they can do whatever they want. He says that even the police have to obey British law and that there is no such thing as law in Britain, that what is good in Britain is also bad in other countries. He also gives a great presentation about the Mau Mau murders, which is, of course, a war crime, and he also talks about the British government being behind it. His name is Frank Jannet, and his father was also murdered, and he also talks about his father's account of the Mau Mau murders. He does an excellent job, and I really recommend watching this documentary.

The movie itself is very interesting. There are a few bits that are not very realistic, but this is because of the way the interviews are done. If you are interested in a more "realistic" version of the story, then you should look elsewhere. The main point of the movie is that it tries to convey the message that is hard to get across without relying on the media and the politicians. It is a good film, and is not a waste of time. But it is not really for the masses.

I watched this movie and it is one of the best documentaries I've ever seen. It's really hard to find a movie that can make you think and still make you laugh. I really enjoyed the interviews with celebrities and even some people who were really upset about the movie. They told me how they felt about the movie and how they feel about it now. I loved the way they were showing the interviews with the celebrities and then the movie. I also really enjoyed the way they talked about the film, which made it so much more special. I would recommend this movie to anyone. I really hope you like it too.

This documentary is about a man who went to prison for killing his wife. The story is told in the form of interviews with the people who knew him. The interviews are very interesting and they are not boring at all. This is an important documentary that you should see. I really liked it and I would recommend it to everybody.

I can't believe I am saying this but this movie is not for everyone. I am in my early 20s and I have a lot of respect for the military and the people who serve. I am a mom who loves her son. I was born and raised in the military and I know what it's like to be a part of a family and the sacrifices that go into that family. I know what it's like to be a part of a military family. I was very surprised at how well this movie portrayed the military and the sacrifices that are made to protect our country. It is very hard to watch and see the negative side of the military and the sacrifices that are made to protect our country. The movie is very well done. I was very moved by this movie and I have seen it about a dozen times since I saw it in the theater. I think it is very important that we all see this movie and share it with others.

I found this film to be very informative. I have been trying to find a film that is informative and entertaining, but this one was it. I was very entertained and I felt like I had a better understanding of the issues. The film is so informative and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in the topic of nuclear power. The film is a must see. I am so glad that I found this film. The people that made this film are extremely talented. The film is very informative and entertaining. I highly recommend it.
