critics consensus

Interesting but unfocused, The Swamp's multi-subject approach opens the floor for a lot of questions - and answers very few. Read critic reviews

Critic Reviews for The Swamp

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (5)

  • Directors DiMauro and Pehme fully recognize that these supposed rebels-and Gaetz in particular-are bald-faced hypocrites who don't walk their own talk.

    February 2, 2021 | Full Review…
  • "The Swamp" is full of insights and tasty details about how the culture of Washington operates.

    August 6, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The Swamp is watchable and full of interesting pieces of Congressional trivia, some that I actually hadn't known previously. It's still a railroaded documentary.

    August 4, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The documentary's most useful tactic is how it demonstrates the ways that hyper-partisanship, and hateful rhetoric on both sides, is actually serving the corrupt status quo far more effectively than any outright bribery ever could.

    August 4, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • It turns out to be all talk for the most part, but it is an interesting conversation, and an intriguing, if sometimes flawed, film.

    August 4, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • "The Swamp" is watchable mainly for its willingness to hang around with the likes of 38-year-old Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) and give him a fair and up-close chance to explain himself as a self-styled iconoclast.
