Critic Reviews for Meeting Gorbachev
"Meeting Gorbachev," though consistently engaging, is less a fireworks display than a fireside chat, and so feels curiously like an opportunity missed.
Herzog's film may not be the final word on Gorbachev, but it is affectionate and candid and leaves audiences in a melancholy mood about the sometimes short-lived nature of reform.
It's ultimately because of Gorbachev's seeming unwillingness to fit the director's usual mold that Meeting Gorbachev is able to become such a different and engaging bio-doc.
Herzog has a knack for extracting pithy, poetic responses from his subjects, but here he outdoes himself.
It's a compelling piece of portraiture, clearly done from a place of admiration and respect.
