Is Oliver Stone's 'The Putin Interviews' too flattering?

Last night on Showtime, Oliver Stone met Vladimir Putin. It was the first of four nights of interviews and behind-the-scenes footage of Putin being himself, called “The Putin Interviews.” They talk about Syria, Ukraine, the U.S. election. Stone even sits down with Putin to watch a DVD of “Doctor Strangelove.”
