About us

Modern Times Review is the European documentary printed magazine and web publication covering the world of non-fiction – with critical independent articles. As non-commercial we are working with key European documentary festivals (magazines on-site for audiences).
We are printed three times annually – sent to our subscribers – and publish new content weekly online. Our archive has now more than 2000 reviews or articles (also some non-fiction books).
Truls Lie is the editor-in-chief. With content provided by our ten European critics, well known to the European film community, our editorial line is threefold: International conflictscontrol (power, surveillance, finance, big tech), and deeper ecological/existential issues.
