Great Documentary (unauthorized)
24 September 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In this movie Nick Broomfield tells an interesting story. Actually I was at the showing at TIFF where he had to dodge banana peels to get into the theatre. It was interesting as he travelled around Alaska her friends and family wanted to talk with him, seeking fame and fortune, or so it appears. At one point we see what happens when Sarah's people figure out what is going on. He made a number of attempts to let her tell her side of the story, but judging by the way she has been portrayed by the media it is easy to assume she would not make an appearance. Even after saying that she will be talking to him.

It is an very different perspective from our goof friend Michael Moore in that Nick is less confrontational in his approach. It is also very scary to imagine that so many people supported her at one point and to some degree still do. How disillusioned are they with politics and the democratic process that they have decided to pit their faith and hope in her hands. This that are presented in this movie are very disturbing and make me wonder if she could have ever got away with half the things she did in places like California, New York or Massachusetts.

See for yourself after yourself, but I can assure you. After seeing Sarah Palin: You Betcha. You wont be the same.
