Putin documentary, I hope Oliver Stone succeeds in his goal of generating discussion 

I don’t want to use this blog to talk about the Russian president or repeat previous thoughts, so will be quite brief. I haven’t watched yet but will, I haven’t owned a TV for several years. The documentary took place over two years. That should be long enough to get a sense of who he is and what he thinks regardless of any bias. Neither filmmaker or president are stupid people.

I spoke with a couple of US friends yesterday who have lived in UK over 20 years. They are not returning to US this year (they go annually). We don’t discuss politics very much and US/Russia topic has never featured. As with many US citizens I have met, we discuss policies and impact on society sometimes but Washington and Wall St are what they are, so are Westminster and City of London.

So if you really can’t be bothered to learn Russian or visit Russia and to date just recycle media via social media, at least watch it and decide for yourself.
