Jos de Putter and Masha Novikova recap the mysterious November 2006 poisoning death of Alexander Litvinenko, a former agent of the FSB (Federal Security Service, successor to the KGB) who won political asylum in Britain and accused his old organization and President Vladimir Putin of various conspiracies against the Russian people. The byzantine story cries out for an objective narrator, but rather than reconstruct his career and evaluate his charges, this Dutch production throws together sensational news footage and speculation from Litvinenko’s allies (his widow, his father, fellow dissident Vladimir Bukovsky, exiled Chechen foreign minister Akhmed Zakayev). Like many contemporary news accounts, the resulting documentary begins with a conclusion—that Litvinenko was silenced by the FSB—and works backward into obscurity. 55 min.
