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 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.
