Storyline

USA THE MOVIE is an independent landmark, a fictional drive through reality, a prophetic journey into the future of humanity. One of the main elements is Kirk, a comfortable "All American" traveler who awakens from blissful ignorance into painful awareness of the world. He grows increasingly confused and destructive, fulfilling his destiny as the instrument of ultimate extinction. Real scenes of his physical and emotional breakdown, which were captured during filming, act as a thread between fiction and reality. USA THE MOVIE is a journey inside the essence of a Superpower; a country that shocks the world with its might, bringing out envy, anger and hatred in the hearts of other nations. The film deliberately utilizes the feel of sweeping epic, independent drama, historic newsreel and gritty verite' to tell the story.

Disappointing
19 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was recommended to me by some academics. From their comments, I had some pretty lofty expectations. But this movie was nothing but disappointing. The aim of the director is obvious--to use an interweaving of speeches/poems as a way to argue against the Bush doctrine. But the director fails miserably at this. Also I seriously question the director's choice of main character. It's a bum who is definitely not worthy of being heard. The rise of corporation power, so what? Most importantly, this movie gets a failing score in its persuasive power; it's clearly intended for those who've already formed their opinions. It's true that the movie's aesthetics are quite pleasing. But pretty much everything else in the movie simply sucks.
