FOR THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE! America… the great! A country focused solely on its “Left” and “Right” with a hole that has been unexplained in between. A country where freedom is within abundance and the American Dream is more than a possibility! But is this dream a dream or mere reality? Let’s take a dive into the mind of Dinesh D’Souza (who also brought to us –America, and Hilary’s America) and get in depth of the shape of this nations development, political aspects and the humans who provide its heartbeat.
Death of a Nation STRIKES the history of two ideologies that mold the foundation of the modern-day left….Socialism and Racism. Death of a Nation seemingly discredits the ideologies of Fascism, Communism, and Socialism. Let’s just say , if you are one who hates capitalism and sees socialism (and even communism) as the only option to a functioning society, you will definitely hate and demolish this film because it shreds the true history of socialism which many wish to bury.
D’SOuza looks to destroy the narratives that are inherited by both the “Left” and the “Right” which is why many may depict and consider this film to be so dangerous. It’s how you will look into it, your views and your interpretation will allow your output on the film. It’s well narrated, and it provides great re-enactments of events that happened in history which shaped the outcomes of where we are now. But, this documentary is all over the place and doesn’t have a complete balance of the points that he’s trying to get across for both sides.
If this movie is on your list of (must-sees), Go in with an open mind! I give this movie 2.0 mad cow disease burgers. Throwing some rotten anchovies on top, so please please don’t eat this. Approach with caution and this time you might want to prepare your own meal. It’s bad…let me know your feedback! Come back for more from me the Movie Man and keep it grubbin!!!!
