Citizen K is a 2019 documentary film about Mikhail Khodorkovsky, written and directed by Alex Gibney.[5][6][7] It is a film about post-Soviet Russia[8] featuring Khodorkovsky, Anton Drel, Maria Logan, Alexei Navalny, Tatyana Lysova, Leonid Nevzlin, Igor Malashenko and Derk Sauer [Wikidata].[9]

Citizen K was financed by Amazon.[8] It had its world premiere at Venice Film Festival[8] and was part of the official selection at Venice Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival and BFI London Film Festival.[10]

The film received generally positive reviews from critics. As of August 2020, 95% of the 58 reviews compiled on Rotten Tomatoes are positive, with an average score of 7.74/10. The website's critics consensus reads: "Citizen K sees documentarian Alex Gibney training his sights on post-Soviet Russia, with engrossing -- and unsettling -- results."[11] Gibney received a nomination at the 72nd Writers Guild of America Awards for Best Documentary Screenplay, losing the award to his own film The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley.[12]
