Review

At the age of 87, Henry Kissinger is in reflective mood as he looks back over his astonishing career as a global statesman in this wide-ranging film from 2010, culled from 25 hours of footage and supposedly his last contracted long-form interview.

But expect no mea culpa from the former US secretary of state, he stands by his decisions over such controversial issues as the secret bombing in Cambodia during the Vietnam War and US interference in Chile. He’s rightfully proud of his part in opening talks with China and the Soviet Union, and offers fascinating insights into the characters of Chairman Mao, President Brezhnev and North Vietnam’s Le Duc Tho.
