Synopsis

This documentary chronicles Mikhail Khodorkovsky's transformation from a self-proclaimed socialist to a fully realized capitalist - also recounting the stunning turn of events that made him one of world's most famous political prisoners. Weaving together in-depth interviews (including the first on-camera exchange with Khodorkovsky since his arrest), archival material, and stylized computer-animated reenactments, Tuschi shows us a man who embodies the paradox that is modern Russia - condemning the very corruption that helped make his fortune and envisioning a new Russia with respect for the rule of law. Also covering the fight between Russia's richest man (Khodorkovsky) and the country’s most powerful leader (Putin), Cyril Tuschi integrates investigative journalism with political analysis, contextualizing his narrative against political and cultural changes that reshaped Russian life in the last 20 years. The film also dares to explore some of the still-unanswered questions about this mysterious story (e.g. Why didn't Khodorkovsky leave Russia before being arrested? Was Vladimir Putin threatened by Khodorkovsky? And if so, how?) Stolen twice from the filmmaker's office before its Berlin premiere, Khodorkovsky is investigative journalism as political thriller - and an unflinching look at the state of the still-infant capitalist Russia.

Per Theater Chart: Strength and Independence

December 6th, 2011

We are right in the prime of Awards Season and over the weekend there were three films earning very impressive per theater averages and two of those films were recently given Independent Spirit Award Nominations. Leading the way for the second weekend in a row was The Artist with an average of $35,211 in six theaters. It is still barely in theaters, but it is already halfway to $1 million. Being a silent film will likely keep the film from expanding truly wide, but it should grab some measure of mainstream success. Shame debuted in second place with an average of $34,952 in ten theaters. It is rare for an NC-17 film to do this well. Rounding out the $10,000 club was A Dangerous Method placed third with an average of $29,894, while still playing in four theaters. More...
