Critic Reviews for Putin's Kiss
This isn't quite the human drama Pedersen might wish, but it's compelling enough, and more important, it gives us a look at conservative Russian politics at their most ruthless and vindictive.
What makes Putin's Kiss interesting goes beyond Masha's personal rise and fall. For starters, it offers a fresh glimpse into how Putin's Russia actually works.
"Putin's Kiss'' is more than just the portrait of a naive young woman. It's a frightening look at Putin's warped version of democracy.
A portentous, rather creepy documentary that masks its lack of historical context with an atmosphere of accumulating threat.
While it comes across as simplistic, it's also achingly wistful about political awakenings being just a matter of talking to and finding empathy for the other side.
