Critic Reviews for Citizen K
Americans may go into "Citizen K" not knowing who this rather anonymous looking man is or how to pronounce or spell his name. But they will come out totally on Team Khodorkovsky.
[I]t is Gibney's film... that best tells this complex, contradictory tale of a businessman who rose from middle-class anonymity... to become one of Russia's richest men during the early days of Russia's post-Soviet experiment with capitalism.
It's Gibney's willingness to hold his subject accountable that keeps Citizen K from drifting into dull hagiography.
Essential viewing for anyone needing a history lesson about Russia since the fall of the Soviet Union, and who wants a frontline report on the current geopolitical landscape in Europe, including Ukraine.
This is where [Alex] Gibney, gilding a history lesson and social-issue deep dive with investigative chops and weaving it all into a compelling story.
