Showing a nation deeply, deeply divided

"American Selfie: One Nation Shoots Itself" (2020 release; 91 min.) is a documentary about the state of the country. As the movie opens, people are taking selfies in Chicago. "I like pictures of myself", comments one guy. We then start on a 12 month journey around this country, starting in "September 2019" in what now feels like a different era: people lining up in New York to buy the newest iPhone. "Do I need it? I want it!" comments someone. As it happens, it it the very same day of a climate march in NYC. "October 2019" brings us to a Trump MAGA rally in Minneapolis, where things get very ugly very fast, coming on the heels of Trump's mysogynistic, racist and xenophobe comments about US Congresswoman Ihlan Omar (last I checked, an American citizen just like you and me). At this point we are 10 min. into the movie. Couple of comments: this is the latest from longtime documentarian Alexandra Pelosi (yes, daughter of). In this film, she takes to the road and documents the state of the union over the course of 12 months. It ain't a pretty picture: when you mix Trump's unrelenting divisive and racist attacks and outright lies about anything and everything with a pandemic the likes we haven't seen in over a century, it proves to be a punch to the gut. Watch the scene in "November 2019" when the film maker interviews people at the Walmart in El Paso, TX which just months before was the scene of a deadly mass shooting by a crazed guy wanting to stop an "invasion" of migrants (Trump's words). Watch the scenes in "May 2020" where New York funeral homes are overrun by COVID-19 deaths. It just breaks your heart. This movie is not easy to watch, as it so accurately reflects the difficult times this nation is going through in 2020. The release of this film couldn't be timed any better, literally a day after the last presidential debate where Trump declares with a straight face that "I am the least racist person in this room". Yea, he really said that, along with dozens of other fabrications and outright lies. "American Selfie: One Nation Shoots Itself" premiered on Showtime this weekend, and is now available on SHO On Demand and other streaming services. If you want to be reminded of what is at stake in the current (yes, current: tens of millions of ballots have been cast already) presidential election, I'd readily suggest you check this out, and draw your own conclusion.

So slanted - Apple doesn't fall far from the tree..." Hey momma Pelosi?"

And look at the careful timing of this release.... I guess just like Hunters damning laptop? But none-the-less, it is an info-mercial for "the big guy", the "Chairman". So exhausting, confusing and diverting. What about showing ALL THE GREAT AMERICAN people on both sides, and great things people are doing to bring this country together - because it IS out there. Why JUST such heavy dark doom and gloom? And if you go there, why did Pelosi not dive deep into the sinister darkness of Antifa and those radicals who have hijacked BLM? The Summer of love? All the riots? The fake news? Such BS, I feel like puking on my keyboard as I write this. I gave this a 3 because of the great film-editing and filming (Trump should hire them). Some very creative work here to make America look like the world will end with Trump in for 4 more years. Some very moving videos, but Pelosi's view is ONE SIDE clearly. They try to show a little of both, but the Trumps side is so biased, it oozes off the screen as a joke. We get it.... you don't like him. Get over it. Grow up. This should be flagged as a political statement, not a documentary.

propaganda in a nutshell

Don't bother, movie done by the daughter of a fall politician tells you everything you need to know.
