Storyline

Granted unprecedented access to both Putin's professional and personal worlds, Oscar®-winning writer and director Oliver Stone (Platoon, JFK) with the help of his longtime documentary producer Fernando Sulichin, interviewed the Russian leader more than a dozen times over the course of two years, most recently in February following the U.S. presidential elections. Since first becoming the president of Russia in 2000, Putin has never before spoken at such length or in such detail to a Western interviewer, leaving no topic off limits. In scope and depth, THE PUTIN INTERVIEWS recalls The Nixon Interviews, the series of conversations between David Frost and Richard Nixon that aired in the spring of 1977, 40 years ago.

Up close and politically correct
22 June 2017 | by dohertyeamonnSee all my reviews

Enjoyed this immensely. Great to hear another side of recent history from one of the protagonists. Probably wouldn't go for drinks with Putin but he certainly knows how to explain his point of view within the current world order. So refreshing for a leader to explain his political position/opinions with historical references and not needing to hide behind tweets to defend decisions that have little thought behind them and even less support. Mr. Stone, although not a heavyweight interviewer, manages to cover areas of interest to the American media/audience while at the same time allowing Putin to give an insight into the problems facing his country and how absurd he considers the time wasting and unfounded accusations leveled at Russia for meddling in the 2016 US Presidencial Election. Well done Mr. Stone.
