  • Would you like to be punched in the face for 90 minutes? Then do I have the film for you!

  • [Stern's] goal with the film is not to argue or to condescend but to listen.

    September 22, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Who was Stern's target audience? Surely Democrats don't want to spend 90 minutes relitigating the election any more than Republicans yearn to squander so much as a cent of their entertainment dollar watching liberals whine.

    September 15, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • It's disorganized and erratic, jumping from thesis to thesis and location to location, sometimes seeming to pride itself on adopting a nonjudgmental 'I'm just listening' attitude.

    September 15, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Basically serves as a chronicle of one liberal's disbelief and disillusionment as election night dashes all of his ideals about the progress he thought our country had made. Almost two years later, though, who needs or wants to see that?

  • Forget fake news; "American Chaos" is yesterday's news.
