Everyone in the USA should watch this great film - and they will love it.
6 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is a superb documentary and, under any circumstances, should be watched by everyone. In the light of what is happening to our country re Russia today, it should be considered one of the most important films of the year. A fascinating look at international intrigue. If Russia would go to this length over sports, think what they will do about our elections, and how efficient they are in doing it.
