Objective & Very Informative
25 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film this afternoon. I thought it was extremely well done. The producer/presenter researches Obama's biography back into his childhood (avoiding the birth certificate issue, incidentally), for the sole purpose of trying to understand who/what influences have shaped Obama into the person that he is today. Then, after going through that analysis, it briefly recaps some of the key points of his presidency thus far and shows how his actions/decisions, in light of those influences actually make total sense. I don't mean "total sense" in that I necessarily agree with them, mind you, I just mean that, with this new understanding, his actions can be seen as part of a predictable pattern. The producer then goes on to project this understanding into what he thinks would be a likely result of an Obama second term, and the results seem quite plausible to me.

I thought it was the most informative piece of journalism that I have ever seen about Obama. It was well worth the ticket price. The theater was jam-packed, but there wasn't one single sound the whole time the film was rolling. The audience was all dead quiet, rapt with attention and obviously very, very serious.

I would highly recommend that you go see it.
