Ian Inaba assembles compelling evidence to support his claim that African-Americans -- who are traditionally more likely to vote Democratic -- are being deliberately and systematically excluded from the political process.
The movie includes a postscript about [McKinney's] loss, blaming it on more dirty tricks. That may be true, but it doesn't put the steam back in the film.
McKinney's basic truths remain convincing.
American Blackout makes a credible case, with some of its most damning evidence coming from the mouths of the conservatives themselves.
An illuminating, infuriating document that paints McKinney as a true American heroine and patriot and confirms your worst fears about just how rotten our 'democratic' process is at its core.
A powerful piece of political cinema that effectively documents the disenfranchisement of black voters in the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections.
The phrase 'Apartheid elections' is used more than once, and it certainly strikes a chord
The film is by far the most hypocritical thing I have seen in ages.
A raised-fist documentary on black voter disenfranchisement which loses some, but definitely not all, its punch by morphing into a paid ad for Cynthia McKinney.
American Blackout exposes a few issues we have already known about for years (the voting situation) before finally turning towards greater things by focusing itself on a truly remarkable individual.
Extremely limited and almost without purpose except as an organizing tool for party foot soldiers.
Well structured and fast paced, the film uses news footage, interviews with voters and congressional leaders, poignant images of Ohio voters standing for hours in the rain, only to be told it was too late to vote.
