from Russia Insider:
As we’ve explained before, there are two great new films out recently in Russia about Putin, Andrei Kondrashov’s ‘PUTIN’, and Vladimir Solovyov’s ‘World Order 2018’.
Kondrashov’s 2 part, 4 hour bio is a look at Putin’s life through interviews with Putin himself and people who have known and worked with him going back to his childhood. Completely fascinating. So far the first 2 hours have been released with English subs – here is our write up about it on RI.
Solovyov’s approach is different. He had a film crew follow Putin around for a year, and in between events, Putin would sit down with Soloviev and answer a few questions.
Both Solovyov (Jewish) and Kondrashov (Russian) are heavy hitters in the Russian media world. Solovyov is the host of one of the 2 top talk shows in Russia, and Kondrashov was until recently one of Russia’s most prominent news anchors.
Both films are excellent, and highly recommended. As soon as the second half of Kondrashov’s film is available with English subs, we will let you know.
