Movie Info

The Young Turks, one of the most popular online news shows in the world, has amassed a YouTube network of millions of subscribers and billions of views. But that wasn't always the case. MAD AS HELL documents the tumultuous, at times hilarious and altogether astonishing trajectory of Cenk Uygur, The Young Turks' main host and founder, as he traverses from unknown Public Access TV host to internet sensation by way of YouTube. When he ventures into national television by landing the 6 PM timeslot on MSNBC, Cenk's uncensored brand of journalism is compromised as he becomes a thorn in the side of traditional news media; his unwavering dedication to speaking the truth puts him at the very nexus of the battle between new and old media.

Critic Reviews for Mad As Hell

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

Being innocent of much television and online content, this reviewer had never heard of Uygur or TYT but found the film's account of them engaging enough to leave him intrigued and impressed with both.

February 6, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

It's a job requirement for a show host like Mr. Uygur to project his personality and beliefs; this filmmaker doesn't muster a healthy skepticism to match.

February 5, 2015 | Full Review…

Unexpectedly, the film best serves as a cautionary anecdote that epitomizes the mutual apprehension between Internet-age start-ups and establishment media.

Everything about YouTube political pundit Cenk Uygur is big: his opinions, his hand gestures, his eye rolls and, of course, his ego.

February 5, 2015 | Rating: C | Full Review…

A documentary with a paralyzingly narrow focus, and one whose bigger question - What is happening to the news as we know it in this age of fractured and freewheeling media?- is shunned in favor of a simpler one: Doesn't Cenk Uygur seem like a great guy?

If Napier hadn't shown up with a camera, Uygur would likely have continued filming himself, because his "firebrand" commentary is only ostensibly about politics; it's mostly about projecting the world onto his own ego and making it Cenk Uygur-shaped.
