Storyline

On the night Barack Obama was elected our 44th President, more than 58 million voters cast their ballots for John McCain. Journalist/filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi presents this first-person, cross-country snapshot of a group of conservative Americans who saw their hopes and dreams evaporate in the wake of the decisive Democratic victory in the 2008 Presidential election. Filmed in the months leading up to that historic event, Pelosi gives a voice to these voters, once labeled 'the silent majority,' and explores their feelings about a changing America in which they live.

Horrible
29 June 2014 | by Mischief810See all my reviews

This is drive-by journalism at its absolute worst.

The film's objective: Go to as many political rallies as you can. Find all of the wackos that such rallies inevitably attract, get them on camera and ask them stuff you know they don't know. The entertainment value is as comedic as it is unrepresentative.

No time is devoted to actually exploring the motivations of these people. We don't know their backgrounds, their employment status or history, their families or their communities, all of which help to shape political views in individuals. I don't think we even learned more than one or two names.

For whatever reasons, these are disaffected Americans. You don't contribute anything to political discourse or understanding of the fabric that makes up the political spectrum with garbage like this. This only states the obvious: Some Americans are unhappy and vocal about their dislike of the country's track. Some are inarticulate; some are insensitive; some are motivated by things we don't understand.

The intellectually curious would want to know why. This film doesn't come within spitting distance of that. This ain't no Ken Burns film.
