Absolutely Nothing New Here
13 July 2011 | by (Kansas City, MO, USA) – See all my reviews

While there is nothing wrong with this Al Franken documentary ... it is rather so-what, also. I don't really see what this documentary/film does new ... as with Franken I knew ALL of this already.

People bemoan "lazy journalism" and I guess one could actually bemoan "lazy film-making" with "Al Franken: God Spoke" ... although I am uncertain if that is the case here. The problem here is that there is nothing remarkable or note-worthy. Documentaries used to be about compelling subject matter that were supposed to educate the world; but this one comes out as rather un-inspired.

While I am a fan of Al Franken, I don't see why this needed to be made as it gives us nothing new and I'm also not learning anything new with this one.

There have been better docs and there have been worse docs. To say that it is terrible would be wrong; but it would also be wrong to say this one is highly important and/or necessary. I need to stress how much MORE one will get out of reading Al Franken's books than a random viewer will get out of watching Al Franken: God Spoke.

One MUST be a liberal to enjoy this; but even this liberal was un-impressed with this very-standard documentary. PLEASE ... read Franken's books or you won't be getting much out of this impressive individual (as this does him no justice).
