  • 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.

  • In some ways it's perfect, in its Eisenstein-esque refusal to compromise on the idea of the crowd as the key participant. In other ways, though, its sternness hampers it.

    Top Critic
  • Ukrainian director Sergei Loznitsa's Maidan harkens back to the heroic, journalistic roots of documentary-making and yet feels ineffably modern and formally daring.

    Dec 9, 2014 | Full Review…
  • 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.
