Objective Approach
19 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary gave a refreshingly objective look at our political environment. The filmmakers didn't set out with any preconceived political agenda nor any dogma like many political documentaries. It seems they take a calm and sometimes subtly humorous approach while they let the participants make their case. The people interviewed weigh in from many sides and often with strong opinions, but conclusions are up to you. The short animated educational vignettes and historical footage lend lightheartedness and provide perspective and context. The irreverent narrator also makes the often uncomfortable political discussion entertaining. It is well done and definitely worth a look.
