Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "Maidan" is a film of scale and immediacy, finding artistry, for better or worse, in bearing witness.
Fresh: In contrast with most documentaries made in the wake of an historic event, "Maidan" will last beyond the current Ukrainian upheaval to stand as compelling witness and a model response to a seminal moment too fresh to be fully processed.
Fresh: Ukrainian director Sergei Loznitsa's Maidan harkens back to the heroic, journalistic roots of documentary-making and yet feels ineffably modern and formally daring.
Fresh: Easily the most rigorous, vital, and powerful movie of 2014, Sergei Loznitsa's Maidan may be a perfect Bazinian cinema-machine - reality is captured, crystallized, honored for its organic complexity, and delivered unpoisoned by exposition or emphasis.
