Rebellion: The Litvinenko Case
Time Out says
Shot in crude, at times almost unprofessionally subjective style, the film charts the key events in Russian history that led to Litvinenko’s defection, from the controversial Moscow bombings that were the pretext for war in Chechnya to the rise of Vladimir Putin and his pogrom against opposition journalists such as Anna Politkovskaya, who also appears. Utilising a wealth of insightful interviews and displaying a genuine, heartfelt passion for his subject, Nekrasov draws a bone-chilling portrait of a country controlled by murderous cynics, with a populace too browbeaten and dispassionate to resist. Despite some rough edges, this is a powerful piece of work.
