Safe enough to be played in Russia
1 October 2018 | by canucky8See all my reviews

While providing insight into Gorbachev's upbringing and personal life, this film avoids any topics that could reflect poorly on Gorbachev or the Russian state under his rule. The film features many shots of the interviewer, Werner Herzog, praising Gorbachev. The interviewer is more interested in making Gorbachev like him than talk about real events. To be fair to Herzog, he probably wouldn't have gotten the interview if he challenged Gorbachev on any topics.
