Critic Reviews for Operation Odessa

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

Mr. Russell has a fluid hand with the visuals, which are always clever-the "Miami Vice"-style graphics and pulse rate evoke the era in question, and the sense of heedless forward motion suggests the Cinema of Excess.

As rollicking a documentary about heavy criminals as you get ... This is wild stuff. If you love the 'Cocaine Cowboy' oeuvre you'll hoover this up.

Apr 27, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

You can ignore the political implications and just enjoy Operation Odessa as a madcap black comedy about three guys who are half-genius and half-oaf blundering in and out of harrowingly scary situations.

Apr 5, 2018 | Full Review…

Operation Odessa is such an unbelievably wild, entertaining documentary that the dullness of its title is a borderline crime against itself.

Apr 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Flashy as all get out, with split screens, stylish graphics and peppy music galore, the documentary is full of pizzazz from start to finish.

The fact these guys are willing to talk on the record is of tremendous interest; if only the storytelling was a bit tighter.
