Storyline

At age 18, Barack Obama admittedly arrived at Occidental College a committed revolutionary Marxist. What was the source of Obama's foundation in Marxism? Throughout his 2008 Presidential campaign and term in office, questions have been raised regarding Barack Obama's family background, economic philosophy, and fundamental political ideology. Dreams from My Real Father is the alternative Barack Obama "autobiography," offering a divergent theory of what may have shaped our 44th President's life and politics. In Dreams from My Real Father, Barack Obama is portrayed by a voiceover actor who chronicles Barack Obama's life journey in socialism, from birth through his election to the Presidency. The film begins by presenting the case that Barack Obama's real father was Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party USA propagandist who likely shaped Obama's world view during his formative years. Barack Obama sold himself to America as the multi-cultural ideal, a man who stood above politics. Was ... Written by Joel Gilbert

I will be voting against President Obama in the upcoming election but I STILL think this movie is really bad.
21 October 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I received this DVD in the mail to me and I assume it's being mailed free to bazillions of voters around the US (and I am sure particularly here in Florida). I was curious about the film and decided to give it a watch. After all, it said that it was about President Obama's REAL father. But before I go on, I should honestly point out that I have zero intention of voting for Obama--I really hate his policies and feel he's divisive when he really should be focused on lowering out of control government spending. Yet, oddly, as I watched this film, I felt a bit sorry for him. Why? Because with the central allegation about Obama the film provided no evidence--none! It was full of declarative sentences (such as saying his father was NOT from Africa but was an American communist) with no substantiation whatsoever. Could these odd allegations be true? After seeing "Dreams from My Real Father", I have absolutely no idea! I would say that regardless of who the President's father is (even if it's a chipmunk), the film really missed the big picture. Regardless of his parentage, it should have focused exclusively on the man's policies and how the US economy and government spending is doing after four years. Stick to the concrete and provable facts--not weird speculation. As for the film's discussion of his past association with ultra-leftists and communists, this IS true and a matter of record--and is valid for discussion--though his failed policies are still much more relevant.

Weird unsubstantiated theories about the President's parentage--that just sounds like some nutty conspiracy unless facts can be presented instead of just accusations. It's a shame, as some parts of the film are worth seeing (the second half isn't very nutty and makes many valid points) but the overall picture is a bit too illogical and poorly constructed to be taken very seriously.
