  • "Putin's Kiss'' is more than just the portrait of a naive young woman. It's a frightening look at Putin's warped version of democracy.

  • A portentous, rather creepy documentary that masks its lack of historical context with an atmosphere of accumulating threat.

    February 16, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • While it comes across as simplistic, it's also achingly wistful about political awakenings being just a matter of talking to and finding empathy for the other side.
