Storyline

How did America change from Easy Rider into Donald Trump? What became of the dreams and utopias of the 1960's and 1970's? What do the people who lived in that golden age think about it today? Did they really blow it? Shot in Cinemascope - from New Jersey to California - this melancholic and elegiac road-movie draws upon the portrait of a confused, complex and incandescent America one year after the start of the electoral campaign. That golden age has become its last romantic border and an inconsolable America is about to pull on a trigger called Trump. Written by jbthoret

No Thesis = No Finish From This Viewer
20 July 2018 | by zkonedogSee all my reviews

Like many Americans, I still struggle sometimes to fully comprehend the repercussions of the 2016 Presidential Election. As such, I have watched a number of documentaries on the subject to try and gain some further perspective. Unfortunately, "We Blew It" has been the worst of those experiences.

The problem with this documentary is overwhelmingly obvious: there is no central focus or thesis. It sort of just rambles on about the "Easy Rider" era and the current "Trump era" without any definition on where it was all going. Fifteen minutes into it, I thought it showed real potential. After about an hour, however, it turned so muddy and scattershot that I didn't want to even sink another hour into the proceedings.

Perhaps older viewers who lived through the 1960s/70s will find more interesting material, but this 32-year old viewer saw it primarily as a jumble of conversations that lacked anything tying it all together.
