Movie Info

In this David and Goliath tale for the 21st Century, a group of proud Scottish homeowners take on Donald Trump, as the tycoon prepares to destroy one of Britain's last stretches of coastal wilderness by building a luxury golf resort. As the locals make their last stand in the face of security harassment, legal threats and the cutting off of water and electricity supplies, director Anthony Baxter is thrown in jail as he seeks out the truth. -- (C) Official Site

Anthony Baxter gives us a vivid documentary called You've Been Trumped that treats [Donald Trump] as a smooth, credible, inevitable historical force.

If you still have any questions about the personal character of Donald Trump, check out this muckraking British documentary.

I imagine Trump's idea of beauty is the antiseptic tackiness of the tinfoil towers he erects around the world.

"You've Been Trumped" is a potent study of the intimidating power of money not in theory but on the ground, an examination of how a wealthy man with a boundless sense of entitlement can strong-arm all opposition without really breaking a sweat.

Underdogs stand their ground in Anthony Baxter's modest but revealing doc.

As Baxter demonstrates with agonizing, unflinching clarity, the result was a community and a land that were literally rolled over in the name corporate greed - and with the apparent blessing of the local authorities.

Going into this film guarantees one thing: you will be provoked.

You've Been Trumped follows the progress of Trump's monstrosity ... and it's a horror show to top anything you've ever seen in a Saturday night creature feature.

The star is still Trump. Why this gigantic turd with legs remains the object of fascination to so many speaks unfortunate volumes about the plummeting IQ of the mass audience.

A fine, powerful piece of documentary filmmaking, using old-fashioned vérité techniques -- and more than a little audience manipulation -- to show how political influence and media savvy help the wealthy exert their will.

Though Anthony Baxter seems driven by empathy rather than greed, his film is ultimately as reductive and misleading as the expensive Trump PR campaigns he righteously rails against.

Supremely entertaining documentary about the salt of the earth versus Satan.

It could also be a terrific feature, a John Sayles movie maybe, although it's possible no one would believe a character as odious as the villain of this piece.

Gives a vital airing to a virtually unheard side of a truly sickening story, but it's also thoroughly depressing to watch and you can't help wishing Baxter had tried harder to confront the people responsible.

Audience Reviews for You've Been Trumped

Angry and convincing polemic/documentary that tackles the gruesome figure of Donald Trump and reveals him to be an even bigger fuckwit of epic twattery than previously thought.
