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

Resonates despite tabloid style
17 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

As a reformed leftist who participated in the turbulence of the 60's and 70's, I find this film has the ring of truth and deserves to be watched. Most people in this country are naive and simply don't recognize how the left operates and what their real goals are for this country. As a result they are blinded to the signs which are right in front of their eyes.

However, that being said, I was somewhat put off by the tabloid style especially in the early part of the film. It almost made me feel that if one listens to jazz and likes poetry then they are suspect of being unAmerican which is a J. Edgar Hooveresque stereotype that I heartily reject. Sometimes things are more nuanced than what this film presents. Also, I don't know if many of the photographs of Obama's mother are real or not, however the assertion that Obama's real father was Frank Marshall Davis is very plausible to me and goes a long way toward explaining many things that I find troubling about the "official" account of Obama's upbringing.

After watching the whole film my response was that the real Obama has finally been unmasked even though I was somewhat put off by it's tabloid style. I urge everyone to watch it and ponder its message. The future of the country is on the line.
