It's a tightly woven series of closeups of a diverse, divided populace.
Too much of "11/8/16" feels superficial and unmemorable, despite the range of talents of the filmmakers and the interviewee demographics.
The film remains engaging for its stories, and is likely to be more instructive in the future, when passions have cooled. Judging by most people here, that won't be soon.
A slow-burning psychological horror story, a portrait of a country in the moment its people all finally understood just what they were capable of.
If nothing else, 11/8/16 showcases the sad fact that there is no such thing as "too soon" any longer, because it captures not just a moment, but uniquely, a single event that changed the past, present and future all at the same time.
Hardly earth-shattering, but illuminating nonetheless.
An important portrait of America on the day that changed it for the worse... but difficult to watch, with the impact of the election still spiraling out of control.
Here's betting the minds behind 11/8/16 revealed a bit more about Hillary voters than they intended.
Thought-provoking documentary by 18 directors on the drama, the varied political talk of citizens, and the surprises of Election Day 2016.
The disputatious and fractured omnibus documentary 11/8/16 nibbles at too many stories in too short a time to make the one great American tale it seems to be aiming for.
Too often, the documentary's highly calibrated curation reduces its subjects to mere demographic representations.
A fair and balanced poll taken on election day sporting a record number of directors (18).
A thought-provoking look at the anticipation for the 2016 Presidential Election, 11/8/16 is a pretty solid documentary. While it was clearly meant to celebrate a Hilary victory, given that most of the people that are followed are Hilary supporters (a group of illegal immigrates, a former convict, a union leader, a feminist college student, a black activist, etc.), the filmmakers end up recrafting the film into something quite interesting. The interviews have a nice candid, raw feel; depicting the types of conversations that people were having on the eve of the election. It also does a good job capturing the winds of change as election results came in; with Trump supporters starting to believe in the impossible and Hilary supports being shocked. Additionally, the film refrains from making any political commentary on the election of Trump, but instead lets the people it follows voice the mixed emotions of shock, disappointment, hope, and apathy that were felt by the electorate. Rather than attempt to explain or find meaning in the election, 11/8/16 tries to capture the mood of the voters; the complacency of Hilary supporters, and the pessimism of Trump supporters.
