America - The Film

Recommended Posts

OK, my fundy parents say they want to see this.  Its very unusual for them to say they want to see a movie at a theater because movies are evil, I suppose.  Then I go online and I find out it is from Dinesh D'Souza and I say "Oh no."

 

We may agree that America is declining but I am willing to bet its for very different reasons.

 

Anyone seen this film?

I have not seen the film, but D'Souza is a dubious Christian apologist who decided Jesus wouldn't mind him having a girlfriend prior to getting divorced.

He resigned a position as president of a Christian college when it came to light.

From what I've seen of him, he's a strident American exceptionalism cheerleader.

If you can stomach a film that probably waves the flag throughout, then it might be worth seeing.

I won't pay money to see it.

It will probably be found in the mark down bin at Wal-Mart in a few weeks.

Here's a recap review that provides some info on the content of the film.

For the record, I strongly dislike both D'Souza and Obama.

Yes, I don't care for D'Souza - jury's still out on Obama but not a huge fan. My Dad said "it's the same person who did "Schindler's List" - well I think the producer is the same guy, but this ain't Spielberg directing.  I dislike patriotic films generally.  Think I will pass.

They think America is going downhill because of Obama - they are conservative Republicans.

I would never see it (never planned to anyway, is a right wing circle jerk), after the shit they pulled this week pretending to be a victim to get sales.

Constantly playing the victim, one things conservatives love to do.

Thanks for the link! :-D  This film sounds atrocious.  It is now definitely not on my list of things to watch.

Except for the fact that it's been going downhill since 1820..
