A must-see for all Americans
5 October 2006 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Although I found this to be disappointingly cliché, it nevertheless should be required viewing for all Americans. Most people probably don't know that the administration they have elected is not merely conservative, but reactionary, and dangerously so.

I'm puzzled as to why the makers need to present the material just like a "60 Minutes" episode, unless they believe that's the only format the average Joe will accept. Maybe so, but this will also cause him to regard the content as being similarly superficial, which it certainly is not. This is disappointing, coming from an organization whose avowed purpose is to shake the media out of the rut it's in.

However, the message is so important and frightening that these shortcomings must be overlooked in the face of the realization of where we are headed if we don't do something to stop this before it's too late.
