Postcards from America 1992
19 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

A neat little documentary from Robert Downey that manages to capture a Kodak moment in US history revolving around 1992 presidential campaigns and the issues circulating in the orbit of election politics...Obviously, Downey was inspired by the tone of Michael Moore's 1989 "Roger And Me" and decided to jump on the bandwagon early. The difference in approach stems from the fact that Downey's cachet as an actor guaranteed him access to the places and people on the inside whereas Moore was more comfortable on the streets. Ergo, the entertainment portion of Moore's film comes when he tries to get to see the top brass, whereas the fun with Downey begins when he has to downsize himself to street level. Both Moore and Downey fearlessly make assholes of themselves in the pursuit of a solid, entertaining documentary. While there's no mistaking Downey's political sympathies, he does a fairly decent job of sticking it to both major parties with equal fervor. And after all the screaming, yelling, rap and rhetoric, his final shots are of himself and his family at home...and if Downey has a message, it's contained in whatever you want to read into those last few minutes of the film.
