The story of Donald Trump's election told entirely through Russian propaganda. By turns horrifying and hilarious, the film is a satirical portrait of Russian meddling in the 2016 election that reveals an empire of fake news and the tactics of modern day information warfare.
I have to be frank in saying that documentary film making has never overly appealed to me.mostly because they all seem to follow a pretty straight forward formula. Where this film complete shines is the fact that it's not really a documentary at all and in some respects doesn't feel like a film . It's more of a social experiment and warning of the down falls of fake news and how far the Russian government can go in ensuring the the Russian public only knows what they want them to know. In that regard I think that this is an incredibly important film that I sincerely wish most of the american public can view as a warning of the dangers of falsified news.
