Khodorkovsky Reviews

June 19, 2013
Tuschi has a sharp sense of tempo and shot composition, and he obviously knows how to ask questions, because he gets good answers.

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

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.

Tuschi leans too far into an admiring position, and you thirst for some commonsense critique. It's all a bit rich.

The visually snazzy film has stark, ominous, mostly black-and-white computer-animated sequences depicting Mr. Khodorkovsky's initial arrest.

Though the PR bit is right on, Khodorkovsky goes some way toward questioning the guilt.
