With unprecedented access to Vladimir Putin's professional and personal worlds, Oscar®-winning writer and director Oliver Stone interviewed the Russian leader more than a dozen times over the course of two years, most recently in February following the U.S. presidential elections.  Since first becoming the president of Russia in 2000, Putin has never before been asked such deeply probing questions nor spoken at such length nor in such detail to a Western interviewer, leaving no topic off limits.  In this riveting documentary, provocateur Stone takes us behind the closed doors of the Kremlin and Putin’s official residence outside of Moscow to crack open Putin’s icy facade with surprising results.  An important, historic and entertaining not-to-be missed documentary.
