Held up to a certain light, this film could easily be misconstrued as a propaganda movie going against the Democratic Party. However, when facts begin to build up, there's really only one way you can play this and not live in denial. With a combination of interviews, narration, and dramatic reenactments, Author and Filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza closely examines Hillary Clinton's career as a politician, her run for presidency, while taking a look back in history at the Democratic Party and what dark secrets have they not only held for so many years, but secrets they continue to hold. It was back in 2014 when Dinesh was indicted on charges of campaign finance fraud and he was sentenced to 5 years probation and 8 months in an community confinement center, he always felt he was being silenced by the Obama administration for fear much bigger political crimes would be found out.
It is from then on there that Dinesh begins to dig deeper into the history of exactly who the Democratic Party is and what they use to represent, as opposed to what they represent now. Politics aside what I enjoyed most and respected most about this documentary is the approach to the topic. And done so in a fascinating yet entertaining way. It was about a man searching for truth, and what I thought it did very well was ask more questions than provide answers. It really made me think given what I was so use already knowing about Hillary Clinton, her husband Bill and the Democratic Party. There were things uncovered that blew my mind as well as made me question everything I knew. And I think that's important, to question things. Even when you think you know all you need to know. There's always more you can learn. Since there are a lot of people who are heavy into politics, but are interested in this film, do what I did and go into it with an open mind. I'm not saying you have to swallow everything you see or hear in it, but the best way to view a film like this is with no preconceived notions.
