A great documentary that is not intending to be a puff piece
22 November 2020 | by dmonbmanSee all my reviews

I give this 8 out of 10, as I do believe that a solid documentary should try to see a few sides to an discussion. This is a scathing review of the Republican party and its policies, and how Reagan shaped those for the modern era. It is very succinct in doing this. What is interesting is how much what was going on 60 years ago and mimics what is going on now, and will definitely continue.

This kind of documentary should be made about every ex-president. A deep dive into the things they said, versus the things they do and enact.
