Tuschi has a sharp sense of tempo and shot composition, and he obviously knows how to ask questions, because he gets good answers.

It may be fuzzy around its edges, but inside it's hard as steel.

San Francisco Examiner

As Tuschi's film digs deeper, it seems to offer less information. Clearly, many people have been, and still are, affected by this phantom of a subject. This story is not over.

Philip French
Observer [UK]

Features frank, informative interviews (including one with Khodorkovsky after his second trial) and raises some important questions.

A documentary that takes fewer prisoners than Putin's KGB, Tuschi's study of Russian power politics is smart, scary and sobering.

Tuschi paints a complex portrait of corrupted power.

This film is a commanding insight into Putin's Russia.

Nigel Andrews
Financial Times

Tuschi collates the evidence masterfully - TV footage, documents, interviews with ex-colleagues - to substantiate what much of the world is already convinced of.

Helps to make Khodorkovsky more of a reality than the enigma he threatens to become.

A convincing picture of a principled man prepared to become a jailed martyr if that's what it took to rally the people behind him.

Scotsman

An interview with Khodorkovsky, vox pops with ordinary Russians and some weird animation fail to secure contributions of great significance, let alone clarify basic issues of guilt or innocence.

"Khodorkovsky" is a curious and admirable documentary, the product of one filmmaker's inability to let go of a story.

It's an engaging, personal story full of moving details.

Total Film

Edged with cynicism and wit, Tuschi's film can't hide its admiration - but real answers lurk tantalisingly out of reach.

Navigating a tangled tale such as this is like entering a hall of mirrors. "Khodorkovsky" doesn't do a good enough job of Windexing them.

There is a Catch 22 lurking in the murkiness of this film but most will be challenged to find it.

If Khodorkovsky is not making an especially new argument, it is making it forcefully and engagingly. The form constitutes its own politics, pure or not.

A fascinating documentary more about Khodorkovsky the "player" than about the social and political contradictions of post-Soviet Russia.

It's a perfect fit for the blend of Greek tragedy, spaghetti Western and judicial farce that defines business and politics in the New Russia.

It's unlikely to enflame American audiences with less of a stake in Russia's political goings-on, but works as a persuasive portrait of a politically toxic situation.
