Critic Reviews for The Putin Interviews Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (9)

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...

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.

For students of politics, there is almost as much gold in these programmes as in Putin's chapel.

The special is solicitous, even obsequious, but sometimes revealing anyway.

However charitable one might feel about his intentions, this was a case where a few clear rules were surely in order.

In the absence of startling revelations, what's fascinating about this elaborate production is the theater of it all.

It was a match made in heaven.
