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.

I'm glad I watched this. It is a wonderful, fascinating look at a small group of individuals who really were part of a historic moment. I found myself more than a little bit intrigued. The stories of these men are fascinating, but I don't want to give away too much of the plot, but I will say that the documentary is an excellent introduction to the topic of the American Civil War. The characters are very interesting and the documentary is a very good way to begin learning about this important event in American history.

If you like "docu-drama" movies, you'll like this one. It's not a "docu-drama" but a "docu-reality". The movie follows the life of a group of young people in "kerala". A lot of them are homeless, many of them are drug addicts, many of them are mentally disturbed. They live in the ruins of a local government's housing project. The story is told through their eyes. The movie has many "feel good" moments. The best is when they are at the bus station, sitting at the bus, waiting for their bus to leave. A lot of people will find this movie to be inspiring. It's not a movie for the children, and it's not a movie for the "masses". It's a movie for people who like to think and look at the world from a different perspective. "I think I have to go home now"

I've always loved documentaries, and this is a great example of what documentaries are all about. It's a story of a group of people, each with their own story, and the stories they tell are very real. It's like a short story, and the way it's told is very interesting. It's very personal, and it shows a lot of good points. The best part is the music, which is very real and you can really feel the emotions of the people. The music is very important in the documentary, and the way it's presented is very important. The director and the narrator do a great job, and it's really hard to make a documentary with music, but they do it very well. The only problem is the fact that the narrator's voice is very hard to understand. It's not that bad, but I think that's the only flaw. I think this is a great documentary, and I recommend it to everyone. It's a great story, and it shows you the way of life of a group of people. It's very real, and I really enjoyed it. 9/10

I'm glad I saw this movie, in my opinion it is one of the most important documentary's in the last 10 years. Kudos to this documentary for bringing attention to the issues faced by many of the subjects in the movie. I'm surprised that the movie received so little publicity. In my opinion it deserves more attention than it received. I also found the style of the documentary very good. I've seen some documentaries that have a simple style, but this documentary is way different, I don't think I have ever seen a documentary where I was so intrigued by the subjects and the film makers style. I also found the choice of the subjects interesting. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that many of the subjects were involved in the Occupy movement. I'm glad that the Occupy movement has a way of gaining some public attention, although the media does a bad job at covering the issue. But Occupy is an interesting example, as people who aren't involved in Occupy movements do a lot of activism. It is a great demonstration of how activism can change the world. All of the subjects in the film have personal stories to tell, but I also found it interesting to hear from their friends. The film makers used humor in a great way, which was very effective. I found the documentary very interesting, and I hope that people will see it and talk about it.

In the 1960s, the anti-communist movement began to grow in the US. A group of students in the University of Virginia were inspired by their teacher and started a study group to expose their college professors. What began as a small group has evolved into a large coalition of students in the US and abroad. As the coalition has grown, so have the group members, and in the process have attracted more national and international attention. Many of the professors have been seen as being very sexist, racist and homophobic. With this attention, it is easy to see why this group started and has grown. In some cases, students have faced threats and harassment. Many of the members of this group have been turned off to the University of Virginia, and have left or are planning to leave. As the coalition grows, there has been a lot of talk about the possibilities of radical change in the US. What the group has done is show that even large, well-funded universities and colleges have to face up to issues of racism and sexism in their campuses. But it is not just about the differences between students and professors. It is about the way in which students deal with issues of sexism and racism. The members of the group have shown that these issues are not unique to American universities. And it is no accident that the group was founded by women. The leaders of the group are women, and the messages they have passed on to their female students are both powerful and very relevant to the present times.

In 2010, I went to the premiere of "The Right Stuff", the documentary film about the crew of the Mercury Seven who made history on July 20, 1969 by launching the world's first nuclear-powered rocket to the moon. It was a very emotional experience. I was on the NASA site in Houston, Texas, with my family. I was crying, I was crying, I was crying. I thought I was going to throw up. The whole thing was so emotional. I think the reason that this film is so great is because it really focuses on the crew and their personal lives. They are so ordinary people. It's not the kind of thing you would expect from astronauts. They're not super heroes. They're not big movie stars. They're ordinary people who are trying to do something that they really believe in and want to do. They're doing something that they love. I think it's a very inspiring film, especially for people who have never been to space. It's a great film to watch if you have a good sense of history and you want to learn about the Mercury Seven.

I have never seen such a documentary. It is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. The whole purpose of this documentary is to expose the financial system and how it affects the people. The documentary is very powerful and informative. The film is great for everyone who has ever been in debt to banks or to the government. I highly recommend this documentary.

I really liked this documentary. It shows how real, actual, little people make a difference. It's quite easy to see how easy it is to go to these kind of places and to show it to a lot of people. I think it's pretty good, and I would recommend it. It's entertaining, very well-made and well-made. It's really interesting, and I can't wait to see it again.

I enjoyed the documentary but was somewhat disappointed by the end. I enjoyed the idea of "Making a Movie of a Real Event". That part was a bit over the top but overall it was a good documentary. It shows how we view a real event and it does it really well. But it did get to a point where the documentary became over-dramatic and the dialogue became awkward. I think the director should have toned down the "fake news" part. It gets to a point where we don't care anymore and start to think that the facts are faked. Then it gets to a point where we want to ask questions that could help determine if the facts are true. That part was a little over the top. It is still a great documentary, but not a masterpiece. I do recommend it but I do think they could have done a little more research and fact-checking before they went ahead with the documentary.

I've never seen anything like this before. When it came out, I wasn't even aware of it, but I watched it and I'm not ashamed to admit it I was actually quite moved by it. This documentary shows the best the United States could do in the days of the Vietnam war. It's a moving piece and you should definitely watch it. In the documentary, you see how the children that were kids in the South do everything to get out of the area. They try to make their families better and to avoid being separated from their parents. The film shows you the life of a young kid growing up in a white trash community in the South. I'm not surprised this documentary is getting good reviews, because it's a true story. It's shocking that children are raised by a single parent. The film shows you how it was a way to survive. The only thing you want to do is to do what you need to do to survive and if you don't have money to survive you'll do anything to get by. You'll do anything. It's very interesting and it shows you how difficult it was growing up. There are some parts where you can see the anger and pain the kids are going through. You see the different reactions and thoughts the kids have about what their parents do. I know that sometimes you want to do what you can to help your family and you can't. It's really hard to deal with when you're growing up and you're the only one who can do it. It's difficult to know how to handle it and how to handle it. I think it's a very touching film and I recommend it to anybody.

When the director Robert Minton first envisioned this documentary, he envisioned a film that would tell the story of people all over the world who have a dream to be the next big thing. This is, of course, not a film that, of course, the filmmaker expects the viewer to take seriously. In fact, one of the main points of this documentary is that this is not a film about whether the author/director's theory about the future is correct or not. What is important to understand is that it is a film that is not about either the dream or the failure of the author/director. It is a film about how the individual acts to achieve that dream. This is not a film about how they failed, but how they failed, and the individual's motivations for their failure. This film is an excellent example of how, through examining the personal motivations behind individuals' failures, one can get a sense of the depth of some people's hopes. It is this personal history that the director examines, and in doing so, one can get a sense of what their dreams are, and what their failures are. At times, this documentary is just one long stream of interviews with people who talk about their hopes, and failure, in their lives. One interviewee mentions that, after his death, he had a person tell him that he was having a dream of a hundred million dollars. That dream was to be a pop star. Another interviewee says that, when he first thought of going into the field of paralegal work, he was told that a man in the field would never let anyone talk to him about the job. When this man went to work for the father of the man who taught him how to be a paralegal, the father got out of the conversation and told the man that he knew a man who knew someone who could talk to him. The man who taught the man how to be a paralegal became interested in the man's work, and eventually agreed to work with the man. I can't think of any other words to describe the acting, writing, and directing that is so well done in this documentary. It is an outstanding achievement that can be seen in a number of different ways. One can see the director's gift of capturing moments in time that are meaningful to the individual, or the ability of the director to show a range of emotions in a single shot, or the thoughtful editing of the footage, or the subtle humor that permeates this documentary. One of the interviews with a paralegal discusses the importance of time. The paralegal says that people should never rush into a career in anything they want to do. He says that time is precious, and that when it is wasted, it is no longer valuable. A number of the interviews in this documentary are about relationships. The interview with a young boy talks about how he likes to collect stamps, and how the idea of collecting stamps has been passed down through generations. Another interview talks about how he is close friends with his grandfather, and how he always wants to go to the park. This brings us to the film's major flaw. The focus of the documentary is on dreams. These dreams are of success in the career field, and of a personal dream of a hundred million dollars. When the focus shifts to the

I can't imagine why this film has not had an official release in the US. It's the very essence of the British subculture, and it was a great deal of fun. The artists involved are all masters of their art, and the "grandfather" of many of the art pieces. The film opens with an interview with Graham Greene, and is the first major piece of film ever shot with him. You see him, he talks, you hear him, you smile and laugh, and then you see the next person. Everyone is played by different actors who also have a voice and a film about them. As for the photography, I loved it. I loved the street scenes, the scenes of the German occupation, the ending. This is a good film. The only problem is that some of the characters are a little too old for their roles, and some of the actors have been around for a long time. But all in all, great film, and great to watch. Check it out!

I had a hard time figuring out what to expect with this movie. I love documentaries, but this one seemed to me to be a lot more.interesting and down-to-earth than the typical doc, while being just as entertaining and informative. I'm sure this was the intent of the producers and director, but I also had trouble putting my finger on it. So I'll keep my review brief, as there were some parts that I found a bit hard to swallow. I think it would have been better if the filmmakers had simply been talking to the people who were, in reality, real people, as opposed to the people who just appeared on camera and acted a bit weird. I think the original intention was to actually get people to feel connected to these people, and the film just failed to achieve that goal. All the segments were about people who had experienced something or another that they didn't want to talk about, and a lot of these segments just seemed to have little to do with each other. I guess if you have a really good sense of humor, I'd recommend watching it. I've read the other comments about people getting turned off by the documentary style and style of the people who were interviewed, and I really don't understand the complaints. The film was very good and entertaining, and I can't really see why anyone would be turned off by it. The people interviewed are real people with real stories and I really found that interesting. And, the documentary style and style of the interviews were perfect for this kind of documentary. I'm not going to tell you what the documentary is like, but I will say that the interviews were all interesting, and you definitely can't get any other style or style of interview than what the documentary team chose. And it was all so genuine and real. Overall, I thought the documentary style was great. The movie itself was also really good. I really enjoyed it, and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys documentaries. It was very entertaining, and I'm definitely glad that it was made.

I thought this film was excellent, because it brought me in to an area I knew very little about, namely the mind of an autistic child. It is definitely not for the easily offended, or for those who find the subject matter distasteful. The film is very factual, and I found the interviews to be really fascinating and inspiring. I do not know what to say about the film, because I have seen so many others, all talking about the same thing, and none of them seemed to have any real insight to give. All in all, it was a great film, that could give anyone a good overview of what it's like to be a kid with autism. Although I would have liked to have seen a little more insight into the mind of the father, who obviously was very happy and confident in his decision, but seemed to get so overwhelmed with the whole thing, that he didn't give any support or encouragement to his son, and just watched him in a different way. It's really sad that a father would do that, because autism is the main symptom in his son. The film is definitely worth a watch, and I would recommend it to anyone with a serious interest in autism.

This documentary about Ted Turner is not the usual documentary you see. There's no interviews with the people who have been affected by Ted Turner, the documentaries tend to be short and some of them are just silly. That's what I liked about this documentary. It's a story about Ted Turner and the way he has made a fortune and transformed the lives of millions of people. This documentary is funny and entertaining and very entertaining. He was a philanthropist. He's the greatest businessman in the world. His name is Ted Turner and he owns CNN. He has built a lot of hospitals. He founded the modern news channel. He did all that in a relatively short time. He used his wealth to help people and to spread his message. He was a person who gave his life for others. He did that without any real problems, but he has never apologized to anybody. He always said he was a good person and he did everything for others. In this documentary you can see a lot of funny scenes about Ted Turner. Some of them were made by him. It's very entertaining and it's very entertaining. You don't have to watch it to understand it. There's not many interviews with the people that have been affected by him. This is a very good documentary. I recommend it to all the people who like documentaries.

This documentary is about "Pete" who has lived in the streets of New York City for years. He is a former cocaine addict, who gets a job working for a homeless charity. The documentary starts with a story of Pete's life, then moves into his journey to become an "ex-con". The documentary is entertaining, but the majority of the "ex-con" are very pretentious and pretentious "journalists" who come to interview Pete for a day or two and then they leave. Some of the interviewees are very old and very outdated. You see an old homeless man saying to a younger homeless man "You look so clean, it's amazing". That is like a cop saying to a young suspect "You look like you're about to give him some hot chocolate" and leaving him in a police station, but no one says anything. The filmmakers make the documentary entertaining, but the documentary doesn't really tell us anything about the subject at hand. There is no discussion about what these "ex-cons" have gone through, how they became homeless, what kind of education they had before they started to work for the homeless charity, and what happened to them after their time on the streets. I've heard of many people who have worked for homeless charities. How is it that they aren't quite ready for it, and just accept it without much thought? I think that it is a pity that the filmmakers made this film, because they could have done much better, instead of looking like they are making a documentary about "Pete". It is very obvious that the filmmakers have a lot of background knowledge about homeless people. I know one guy who was homeless in New York City for seven years and started work with the homeless charities. He is very knowledgeable about homeless people and what they go through. He goes on to tell us that he feels very sorry for homeless people who are living in terrible conditions, he even goes on to say that he feels sorry for them because he wants to be a good person. But he says that he knows very little about what goes on in the homeless charities. They seem to be a very politically motivated group. I think that this documentary could have been done better. I feel that it would have been a much better documentary if it was done by someone who knew homeless people better. The documentary could have been done a lot better if the filmmakers had interviewed homeless people or at least someone who knew them better.

An excellent, informative and poignant look into the life of the late film maker Edward Zwick. It's not as much a biography as it is a tribute to an exceptional man, and an honor to a great film. This is my first Zwick documentary, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's certainly worth a look if you enjoy the man. If you haven't seen this, I recommend it.
