  • ... no crackerjack action flick but rather a dizzying, unfocused and, frankly, dull assemblage of revelations and denials.

  • Who needs paranoid thrillers when we have Russia's deathless gift for autocracy as plot material?

    June 19, 2008
  • The film, instead of confining itself to who Litvinenko was and how he came to be killed, wanders off into too many tangents and mentions too many cases. The epic corruption of today's Russia is far too widespread to fit into a single film.

    March 21, 2008 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • A film that does an injustice to the whole chaotic situation in Eastern Europe by making it seem not just impossible, but impenetrable.

Audience Reviews for Poisoned by Polonium: The Litvinenko File

  • Sep 19, 2009
    "Poisoned by Polonium: The Litvinenko File" is an eye-opening documentary that starts with the poisoning of Alexander Litvinenko, a former FSB agent who blew the whistle on corruption and violence in the FSB and moved to London for political asylum. Documentarian Andrei Nekrasov is in a unique position to comment on the case as he had previously befriended Litvinenko and had interviewed him on film on more than one occasion, giving an inside look at the power structure of Russia. Aside from this testimony, there is a string of circumstantial evidence linking a disturbing chain of events starting with the bombing of an apartment building in Moscow in 1999 that killed over 100 people and where the bodies of two FSB officers were found. The powers that be used this as a rationale for the murderous invasion of Chechnya and a subsequential crackdown on dissent that included the murder of journalists including Anna Politkovskaya. So while Russia has the democratic facade that make it and its former president Vladimir Putin attractive to western leaders, the reality could not be more different. In other words, new boss, same as the old boss.
