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.

Finally a neutral in-depth extensive interview with President Putin
18 June 2017 | by ilcool90See all my reviews

Oliver Stone is getting a lot of heat for this mini-series. The reason he gets all that heat is because western critics of president Putin can't live with the fact that the President is finally presented as a human and not as Dr. Evil like the western media usually does.

Stone talked about every subject that the west is obsessed with and The President gave clear logic answers. President never badmouthed his western critics.

This documentary also shows all the good things that President Putin did for his country and that he does everything with Russia's interests on the Nr. 1 spot.

I am pretty sure that many people after watching this series will watch the news networks and talk shows with a huge brick of salt when the subject is going to be Russia and / or President Putin.

Stone did a great non partisan job.
