Screenings: Frontline – Divided States of America (2017)

December 10th, 2017 · No Comments

[DVD, library]

Nearly four hours of gut-wrenching historical recap, delineating a theory that attempts to explain America’s turn toward Trump and the populace’s abandonment of loyalty to establishment politics. Good journalism: it is clear from the outset that Obama can be viewed as the catalyst for the movement (or not) and that Sarah Palin, after her pick to be John McCain’s running mate in 2008, was the first manifestation of the new regime (or not). The talking heads who provide commentary are generally first-person witnesses to the activities described therein. Trump is NOT lionized in this production, although he is also not condemned. Re-living it all made me queasy and ill.
