Benefitting from the chaos that ensued after the dissolution of the USSR, Khodorkovsky was able to amass a fortune in financing and oil production and became the richest man in Russia. But when he accused the new Putin regime of corruption, Khodorkovsky was arrested, his assets were seized and following a series of show trials, he was sentenced to more than ten years in prison. Today, as an exile living in London, he continues to speak out against Putin’s two-decade stranglehold on power.
Expertly researched and photographed, Alex Gibney (ENRON: THE SMARTEST GUYS IN THE ROOM) uses Khodorkovsky’s story as a way to explore the complex interplay between oligarchy and government and its destructive effect on democracy, in Russia and beyond.

Alex Gibney, UK, USA, 2019, 126 min. Russian & English spoken, Dutch subtitles.
