GORBAČOVS. PARADĪZE GORBACHEV. HEAVEN
He is one of Russia's least beloved politicians, while the international community has long celebrated him as one of the most influential political personalities of the 20th century: Mikhail Gorbachev. For a "conversation with a weirdo" – as Gorbachev himself dubbed the action – documentary filmmaker Vitaly Mansky visited the 89-year-old former statesman, shadowing him in his everyday life, which has grown pretty lonesome these days. Personal, humorous and thoughtfully self-aware, the two men take a deep dive into the political past of the Soviet Union, attempting to summarise how Gorbachev's decisions impacted each of their lives.
