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.

A must must watch, a masterpiece for everyone
16 June 2017 | by sweetromanticSee all my reviews

This is really interesting, to know the Russian perspective, and the struggle of Russia since 1990s to have friendly relations with the USA...it shows how many times Russia tried to join USA in different fields to be part of the block and not be considered a threat or an outsider.

It shows how the US denied Russia of becoming part of the NATO, and then surrounding Russia by all the NATO allies countries situated in close proximity with the Russia, establishing military bases in those countries which will always posses a threat not only to the Russia but to the whole world. This also shows that the US might also make Afghanistan a part of the NATO and establish military bases there for long term, which is also in close proximity with the Russia and Iran,China, Pakistan.

This is really important to watch for those who don't know much about Russia and their point of view about the world.
