Critic Reviews for The Putin Interviews: Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (8)

Are The Putin Interviews an instance of Stone hanging or drowning? Not that it matters - the series is DOA, either way.

The Ringer

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.

June 20, 2017 | Full Review…

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.

June 13, 2017 | Full Review…

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.

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