When the film was first announced, it was advertised as a blockbuster that would show the country just who Barack Obama was and how his ideology was shaped and directed by his past. Conservative pundits across the spectrum began plugging the film as a must-see. I’d heard several of Dinesh’s arguments before, in particular his anti-colonialist argument that was featured in his now famous (or infamous, depending on your political leaning) 2010 articlein Forbes magazine titled “How Obama Thinks,” and was curious to see what the film would do given the previous work of its primary creator.
So with trusty bag and notebook in tow, I set out to see if the movie lived up to the hype.
And all in all, I have to agree that the film is worth seeing.
