Mikhail Khodorkovsky looks on from behind a glass enclosure at a court room in Moscow,  Russia, Thursday, Dec. 30, 2010. Khodorkovsky, 47, is in the final year of an eight-year sentence after being convicted of tax evasion, and the new conviction on charges of embezzlement and money laundering could keep him behind bars for several more years.

This latest film from Oscar-winning documentarian Alex Gibney considers the strange case of Mikhail Khodorkovsky — once believed to be the wealthiest man in Russia — who rocketed to prosperity and prominence in the 1990s, served a decade in prison, and became an unlikely martyr for the anti-Putin movement. An engrossing exploration of global politics, the film also looks at how Khodorkovsky has become an advocate for democracy and human rights in Russia.
