It's severely hampered by a Palin-ordained lack of interview access and ultimately fails to get to grips with its subject.

Broomfield goes at the subject with his customary dogged stoicism, which is never less than good fun, but this is one Columbo episode where the culprit barely needed help being brought to task.
October 13, 2011
UK filmmaker Nick Broomfield penetrates Palin's in absentia bubbly facade to uncover the right wing evangelical politician's connections to the Koch Brothers, Rupert Murdoch, the Tea Party and intimations of the Antichrist.

A hatchet job or an accurate portrait of a Machiavellian manipulator? That's apt to depend on whether you lean to the left or to the right.
October 9, 2011
Not a hatchet job. . .but adds so little insight by talking mostly to her enemies that a viewer almost becomes sympathetic about what she has to put up with. Almost.
October 6, 2011
We don't learn anything really new about Palin's politics or her personality, save for a few details that don't shed much light on her thinking (or lack thereof).

Sometimes amusing but too familiar - from yesterday's facts to a Michael Moore-ish structure - the doc does create a convincing portrait of Palin as the ultimate Mean Girl.

[Makes] her sound simply like an evil Tupperware lady.

Like his subject, Broomfield prefers flash to facts.

Palin texted and chewed gum during meetings -- so what?
September 29, 2011
a flat, repetitive fizzle of a gotcha documentary
September 29, 2011
Probably the scariest movie you will see all year.
September 29, 2011
It feels warmed over, devoid of urgency and, in spite of Mr. Broomfield's on-camera displays of doggedness, lacking in curiosity.
September 29, 2011
The barbs feel stale at best, squandered at worst, and the ominous music that accompanies each sounds as if it has been lifted from the silent movie era.
September 29, 2011
Broomfield's eye-opening doc re-treads a lot of known ground about Palin, but also drags out into the full light of day the danger of her particular brand of sad, self-centered, desperate paranoia.
September 28, 2011
Anyone sympathetic to the message will find their beliefs reinforced rather than expanded
September 28, 2011
Broomfield is so dogged that he makes 
 a case, in a deeper way than we've seen, that there's a 
 terrifying remorselessness to Palin's feuding nature.
September 28, 2011
It's juicy stuff but not very informative.

There may be worse things in life than sitting through a 90-minute movie about Sarah Palin. At the moment, I just can't think of any.
