Movie Info

13 vignettes look at a country lost in a haze of post-catastrophic neurosis. From the PR handlers scouring the redwood forest for the perfect spot for a presidential photo op to the gay teenage son of a right-wing politician to the hurricane that brought so many of vastly different backgrounds together (albeit too briefly), the question of what has become of "The Land of the Free" is asked.

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

With a few notable exceptions, pic relies on O. Henry-esque twists, simplistic surprise endings and "aha!" epiphanies to gets its points across.

Despite [director] Tec's worthy intentions, the movie is a mixed bag that seems outdated in its failure to take on the most distressing legacy of the Bush years: the global economic collapse.

March 20, 2009 | Rating: 2/4

The performances are across-the-board solid (most of the cast is theater-based).

March 20, 2009 | Rating: 3/5

All of Roland Tec's miniportraits highlight the snake oil hucksterism and manufactured fear that still beset America.

Top Critic

The lack of research is painfully apparent throughout, as Tec's failure to articulate issues from voting fraud to the Patriot Act ultimately reduces any potentially valid social criticism to mere conspiracy theory.

Cinema Verite' is alive and well as Roland Tec look at what the last seven years of the Bush administration hath wrought. Study, but do not repeat.
