Tv Season Info
As journalism, this is scattershot at best, but as a conversation that covers a vast span of Russian history, culture, and politics as refracted through the mind of Russia's president -- it's often remarkable.
Over time the value of The Putin Interviews will probably rise: they are an exceptional document of a world-changing leader speaking at great length. But at this moment they are drained of immediate impact by virtue of being overtaken by events...
Are The Putin Interviews an instance of Stone hanging or drowning? Not that it matters - the series is DOA, either way.
The conversations are conducted via a Russian translator, and you have to be in the mood to read a lot of subtitles to engage with Putin and Stone's policy discussions, but that small effort is well worth it.
Stone's strength when interrogating Putin on the election hacking only underscores his weakness when discussing the strongman's social policies.
