Critic Reviews for Mad As Hell
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.
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.
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.
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.
