Mikhail Khodorkovsky was once believed to be the wealthiest man in Russia. He came to prominence in the 1990s – the era of the oligarch – when he was one of a gang of opportunists exploiting the chaos of the transition from Communism to become extremely rich. Political influence followed, but so did corruption allegations and enmity, Vladimir Putin eventually ensuring that Khodorkovsky would spend years in prison. Oscar-winning documentarian Alex Gibney interrogates Khodorkovsky, as well as some of his supporters and detractors, to present his incredible life story with thorough, balanced journalistic integrity. Through it he reveals the dark, compelling history of post-Soviet Russia. MH
