San Francisco Chronicle
It not only evocatively captures the Russian spirit and the yearnings of a generation, but it also masterfully chronicles the historic collapse of the Soviet Union and its complex aftermath. Full Review
Joshua Rothkopf
Time Out New York
Thus comes My Perestroika's most sophisticated idea: Day-to-day family struggles have a way of trumping even the most profound political change. Don't miss this. Full Review
Loren King
Boston Globe
Offers a surprising and revealing look at Russia's past and present. Full Review
Nick Pinkerton
Village Voice
The subjects, plainspoken and insightful, attempt to extract the objective lessons of the political past from their subjective fortunes. This struggling to untie the personal-political knot makes for compelling oral history. Full Review
Noel Murray
The Onion A.V. Club
My Perestroika is fairly foursquare as documentary filmmaking goes; it isn't stylistically snazzy, nor doggedly vérité. Its closest kin in the genre is Michael Apted's "Up" films, which are similarly focused on how people change over time. Full Review
