Movie Info

Two weeks before the election of Barack Obama, filmmaker Jeff Deutchman asked friends around the world -- including filmmakers Henry Joost, Margaret Brown, Joe Swanberg and Benh Zeitlin -- to record their experiences of 11/4/08. In this feature documentary, what emerges is a portrait of how people choose to live through "history": the celebration of a new future remaining entangled with the universally visible tensions of the past.

  • Only few moments that are genuinely touching.

  • While Deutchman aimed to make a participatory documentary, the end result is, in the main, an Obamathon of hipsters from Chicago, Austin, and Brooklyn stumping for change and toasting the 44th president.

  • There are numerous times when one wishes the camera would remain on one of its many fascinating subjects and tell a more in-depth story.

  • An emotionally-engaging film featuring folks truly moved on what many will undoubtedly mark for posterity as the day they were most proud to be an American.

  • There's a sort of plebian engagement and value in these collected snapshots, but they don't really fit together in any compelling fashion.

  • I've seen the documentary twice now, months apart, and it seemed quite different on a second viewing. Years from now it'll be something else, and years after that, too.
