What others think

Herzog’s interest in and love for Gorbachev is understandable, and the momentous account of political history told here is a fascinating and significant one, but the tone does veer too far towards hagiography.
Lou Thomas Little White Lies
Herzog and Singer have assembled a riveting and moving portrait of Mikhail Gorbachev, the former Soviet president and arguably the greatest living politician, guided by Herzog's mellifluous voice and gently probing interview style.
David Hughes Empire
The warmth of Herzog's regard for Gorbachev comes ingratiatingly across, but also blunts the edges of this surprisingly gentle documentary.
