Offensively wrong headed but historically fascinating piece of propaganda
20 October 2007 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

"Anarchy U.S.A." is a documentary made about the civil rights movement made by the infamous John Birch Society at the height of the turmoil. If you're familiar with them, you may already know what to expect. Basically they claim that the Civil Rights movement is a mass communist plot to infiltrate American society. They draw a lot of comparisons between it and Cuba. Already, even the most conservative will probably be unable to take this seriously, and it eventually becomes rather funny because of how offensively wrong headed it is. However, it goes on for far too long and becomes rather monotonous and sleep inducing after a while. Those looking to see what some other people thought of the movement though will find this fascinating on a historical level. (4/10)
