Read the book over the holidays and agree with the positive reviews. Putin has turned the Russian state into a criminal enterprise that steals from the Russian people and what they did to Sergei Magnistsky was abhorrent. I wouldn't be surprised to see some of that stolen money linked to Trump's real estate ventures. Didn't Don Jr. or Eric brag about all the Russians investing in Trump property?

I have (see reply #18) and thought it was a relevant exercise as the story is fascinating and looking for discomforting evidence is a constructive analytical step.
In a balance of probability way, I came away from the movie being more convinced that Mr. Browder's case is authentic.
I was able to "catch" the movie on the internet but I hear that sites that make it available are rapidly shut down. :-X

https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2019-02-18/arrest-of-baring-vostok-s-michael-calvey-is-a-message-from-russia

Quote
The arrest of Michael Calvey, a U.S. citizen and one of the biggest private equity investors in Russia, sends two messages to foreign investors: The rules of the Russian business jungle apply even to those who do things by the book and neither foreign citizenship nor a stellar investment record are grounds for an exemption. The Kremlin appears happy to underline both. ...

As for Western investment, the Kremlin knows it has already withered under heightened U.S. sanctions. Whatever happens to Calvey he is unlikely to make things worse. Foreign direct investment in Russia fell to $2.4 billion in the first nine months of 2018 from $25.8 billion in the same period in 2017.
