Disappointed by the intense bias
21 April 2017 | by joehugSee all my reviews

If you're looking for a fact-filled, historical romp; this ain't it. The material is certainly interesting but the perspective is so drenched with agenda it leaves you sickened. There's no balance or even voices from the right end of the spectrum - unless there's mocking to be done. There's only enough present-day commentary to perpetuate a sad version of revisionist history. Progressives will love it. Unfortunately, there's a twisted and cynical perspective woven throughout. I thought my kids would enjoy learning a little about my younger years, but this documentary only glorified and legitimized the social decay that furthered its narrative. People were conspicuously misrepresented, events contextualized poorly, and uplifting stories completely omitted. I expect trash from CNN. I didn't know Tom Hanks was a trash peddler, too.
