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.

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

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.

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.

The movie convincingly turns a power-hungry archetype into an unlikely martyr for free speech.

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.
