Anthony Baxter gives us a vivid documentary called You've Been Trumped that treats [Donald Trump] as a smooth, credible, inevitable historical force.

If you still have any questions about the personal character of Donald Trump, check out this muckraking British documentary.

I imagine Trump's idea of beauty is the antiseptic tackiness of the tinfoil towers he erects around the world.

"You've Been Trumped" is a potent study of the intimidating power of money not in theory but on the ground, an examination of how a wealthy man with a boundless sense of entitlement can strong-arm all opposition without really breaking a sweat.

Underdogs stand their ground in Anthony Baxter's modest but revealing doc.
August 3, 2012
As Baxter demonstrates with agonizing, unflinching clarity, the result was a community and a land that were literally rolled over in the name corporate greed - and with the apparent blessing of the local authorities.

Baxter is a little too staid, too polite to get outrageous - and that keeps the film from outraging us the way it should.

Baxter may not be the most accomplished filmmaker, but he's on the side of the angels here and his determination to give the locals a voice denied them by major media coverage lends his film momentum and heart.

First-time director Anthony Baxter jettisons all pretense of impartiality, without adding any of the intelligent outrage of his evident influence, Michael Moore.

A fine, powerful piece of documentary filmmaking, using old-fashioned vérité techniques -- and more than a little audience manipulation -- to show how political influence and media savvy help the wealthy exert their will.

Mr. Trump comes across as an insensitive, lying bully who will do whatever it takes to realize his dream of creating what he promises will be the world's greatest golf resort.

Secure in its righteous rage, You've Been Trumped never stops for a second to seriously explore the economic points of view, even ones that might benefit the community.

Donald Trump is the face of America here, representing all of us and demonstrating our values abroad. Hopefully this sharp rendering, or something very much like it, is the legacy for which he and his family will be remembered.

The SNP should surely quit the bowing and scraping and bar him from the country.

Collectivist in spirit, this mostly entertaining film lacks an official host or voiceover narration, which first works swimmingly but eventually becomes too diffuse
