A Good Look At The Fluidity of Politics and Truth
28 February 2014 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

A documentary on radical left-wing activist turned FBI informant, Brandon Darby.

So, he started out with a group of anarchists in New Orleans, a group which helped set up clinics with Black Panthers. Darby was described by his colleagues as an "egomaniac" and "alpha dog" during this point...

Somewhere along the way, the Panthers try to turn him on to multi-level marketing... and he goes to Venezuela where he is mixed up with the FARC. Upon his return, he goes from left-wing anarchist to right-wing anarchist (Tea Party). And then things get weird...

Watching this, you have to wonder, is Darby a liar or exaggerator? Paranoid? A hero? Or someone who is simply an opportunist?
