If like me you’re addicted to the latest events in the revolving door of larger-than-life personalities, megalomaniacs and crazies that inhabit the train-wreck soap-opera that is US Politics, be sure to check these out: the latest and greatest movies and shows charting the decline and fall of the United States of America

American Chaos (2018)

Great personal travelogue about one irate Democrat’s journey to understand the 2016 election result. Essentially an extended video diary, this features Chicagoan James Stern criss-crossing the country to seek out the fabled ‘Trumpland’ of America, where the voters James cannot believe actually exist, live. It’s a fun road trip. Stern’s scathing contempt and utter confusionContinue reading “American Chaos (2018)”

The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020)

This movie is a tour de force and stands with the great courtroom dramas of cinema history. It is the career masterpiece of celebrated screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, and will almost certainly win the Best Picture Oscar at next year’s Academy Awards. While we are currently awash with ‘On The Basis of Sex’-style unabashed liberal propagandaContinue reading “The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020)”

The Swamp (2020)

Government corruption! Whatever happened to that issue? Well, as could be expected, it has been tastefully and discreetly dropped. But it hasn’t gone anywhere. This beautiful documentary asks an extraordinary question: what if we look at ‘the swamp’ of Congressional corruption from a bipartizan, neutral perspective? Wow what an idea! Neutrality is incredibly rare inContinue reading “The Swamp (2020)”

1971 (2014)

This is a great little documentary about a little-known incident in 1971 when a group of student activists broke into an FBI office in Media, Pennsylvania, stole files and leaked them to national newspapers. Depending on who you listen to, this may have been a very influential event indeed, even beginning the process of unravellingContinue reading “1971 (2014)”

Hating Breitbart (2012)

Andrew Breitbart was the teddy bear-like new media guru who became integral to Conservative activism after the election of Barack Obama in 2008. He was the unofficial spokesman of the Tea Party movement and crucial to the founding of what became known as the ‘alt right’. After helping found Drudge Report and HuffPost he spunContinue reading “Hating Breitbart (2012)”

Executive Action (1973), The Assassination of President Kennedy (1978) & The Men Who Killed Kennedy (1988-2003)

JFK assassination triple-header! These films seem to have been made before good posters were a thing. But despite that, these are the three to watch – a movie and two documentaries, if you want to go into greater depth about the 1963 coup d’etat (state takeover) in the USA that deposed President John Kennedy andContinue reading “Executive Action (1973), The Assassination of President Kennedy (1978) & The Men Who Killed Kennedy (1988-2003)”
