Navalny provides an account of Alexei Navalny, Russia’s former opposition leader, in the wake of his poisoning in August 2020. Made with remarkable access to its subject and his family and colleagues, the film follows Navalny as he recuperates in Berlin and unravels the at times ludicrously stupid plot to kill him, assisted by the forensic skills of the citizen-powered investigative unit Bellingcat. The result is a documentary like no other, one that is far more thrilling and suspenseful than most Hollywood thrillers, and utterly of our times. Fueled by Navalny’s freewheeling intelligence and charisma as well as his canny understanding of both mainstream and social media, the film’s power extends beyond its subject matter, providing deep insights into the ways in which technology and geopolitics intersect in our digitally accelerated world.
