Storyline

When Steve Bannon left his position as White House chief strategist less than a week after the Charlottesville "Unite the Right" rally in August 2017, he was already a notorious figure in Trump's inner circle, and for bringing a far-right ideology into the highest echelons of American politics. Unconstrained by an official post - though some say he still has a direct line to the White House - he became free to peddle influence as a perceived kingmaker, turning his controversial brand of nationalism into a global movement. THE BRINK follows Bannon through the 2018 mid-term elections in the United States, shedding light on his efforts to mobilize and unify far-right parties in order to win seats in the May 2019 European Parliamentary elections. To maintain his power and influence, the former Goldman Sachs banker and media investor reinvents himself - as he has many times before - this time as the self-appointed leader of a global populist movement.

Good Documentary - Despicable Subject
17 April 2019 | by brendaniforthSee all my reviews

I think Ms Klayman did a triffic job on this documentary. I look forward to her future work. She let the subject speak for himself - in all his abhorrent, idiotic glory. It's scary to see, but we all need to understand how insidious Bannon and his ilk are.
