Critic Reviews for Maidan
This doc gets so close to the action that your eyes will sting from the burning tyre smoke.
"Maidan" is a film of scale and immediacy, finding artistry, for better or worse, in bearing witness.
In contrast with most documentaries made in the wake of an historic event, "Maidan" will last beyond the current Ukrainian upheaval to stand as compelling witness and a model response to a seminal moment too fresh to be fully processed.
Ukrainian director Sergei Loznitsa's Maidan harkens back to the heroic, journalistic roots of documentary-making and yet feels ineffably modern and formally daring.
Easily the most rigorous, vital, and powerful movie of 2014, Sergei Loznitsa's Maidan may be a perfect Bazinian cinema-machine - reality is captured, crystallized, honored for its organic complexity, and delivered unpoisoned by exposition or emphasis.
