This isn't quite the human drama Pedersen might wish, but it's compelling enough, and more important, it gives us a look at conservative Russian politics at their most ruthless and vindictive.
J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader  full review
What makes Putin's Kiss interesting goes beyond Masha's personal rise and fall. For starters, it offers a fresh glimpse into how Putin's Russia actually works.
"Putin's Kiss'' is more than just the portrait of a naive young woman. It's a frightening look at Putin's warped version of democracy.
V.A. Musetto, New York Post  full review
A portentous, rather creepy documentary that masks its lack of historical context with an atmosphere of accumulating threat.
Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times  full review
Though Masha's courage is considerable, her change of heart finally feels too nuanced for Pedersen's streamlined political-drama treatment...
Benjamin Mercer, Village Voice  full review
Innocence was lost; so, apparently, was much of the insightful commentary.
