Movie Info

Americans are polarized and angry. In the crossfire, the loudest voices drown out reason and facts with fear and anxiety. Patriocracy explores the extreme polarization in America that cripples the country from tackling its most serious problems. Whether it's the national debt, healthcare reform, the war on terror or illegal immigration, Americans are shouting at each other instead of listening to each other. -- (C) Official Site

Malone reveals himself to have a stunningly low opinion of his audience's powers of [lie] detection.

Top Critic

Though even-handed about Washington DC dysfunction and corruption by both parties in our essentially financial one party system, the film ponders naive solutions that will likely leave the One Percent of this country's economic dictatorship snickering.

WBAI Radio

This film is a diagnosis of the problem without much in the way of a cure, though it does propose some solutions and tries to be optimistic about them.

Mark Leeper's Reviews

This is a doc one can chew on for days after, recommending to friends, asking people about and wanting to watch again.

Paste Magazine

To presume that even an explicitly neutral political position lacks its own subjective ideological bias is nothing more than a delusion, and not a particularly useful one.

Audience Reviews for Patriocracy

½

It is a fair and balanced assessment of the ever-widening political extremes in American politics and the loss of moderate representation. The film explains the inefficiencies and problems that arise when our elected officials are so extreme and cannot work together. It traces the problem back to why the voting base is continuing to elect such difficult and uncompromising representatives. Negative effects of political talk shows and saturation of opinionated media warp the public's perceptions in concerning ways. This alone is not the only issue in this matter, but this documentary is correct in saying it is a major problem. I appreciate the diversity of viewpoints from former and current politicians of both parties as well as some news representatives. It offers simple solutions for viewers to be critical of what they see and read. The message is worthwhile but sadly, people with interest in this documentary are probably already aware of the concerns it raises.
