Excellent reporting
3 September 2018 | by alexandragorochSee all my reviews

I found this documentary to be very very helpful in placing events in context and thus understanding how they are connected. For example, I remember reading about the bombing of the apartment building right before Putin became President. I was in college at the time and studying political theory and realpolitik and I remember thinking that it was only logical that Putin and the KGB were behind it. And then I forgot about it. Remembering this event and seeing it in the context of the Russian mob and the power vacuum after the fall of the Berlin Wall really helps to understand current events and to understand the course of events in the world over the last 40 years at least. Really fascinating and informative. A must see!
