figured i should give this hit piece a shot since i watched most of the anti-bush documentaries several years ago. as far as this kind of documentary goes, it’s more “bush family fortunes” than fahrenheit 9/11. the production values are poor, the arguments are weak and it’s just not an effective film. it’s pretty shocking to find out that the filmmaker is a serious conservative thinker as much of the film is pretty fluffy in my estimation. he does have a couple decent points and an interesting theory that obama’s anti-colonial view is what drives him more than anything. i don’t entirely buy it, but i can see the logic there.
as far as the facts go, it plays fast and loose with them, but that’s not entirely unusual with these partisan hit jobs. just google 2016 obama movie fact check for more on that.
not well produced, no great revelations, no radically new way of thinking, no serious thinking…this isn’t going to change any minds or be remembered 20 years from now.Watched in theater
