A real view of the present
Some reviews on here trash the content of this movie. What the documentary details is based mostly in facts from actual speeches & interviews of Barack Obama's pre & post election. Hard to say that this is being taken out-of-context or that he wasn't really saying "this" or "that". The filmmakers were trying to uncover as much factual information of the current President so one could get a better understanding of who he is & why he might think the way he does.
I tried to find factual holes in this documentary so as to aid those whosay it is completely bogus, but the whole thing took on a very honest attempt to understand the thinking behind the man & how this might have become who he, Obama, is as a person. Whether one likes or dislikes Obama, the facts pretty much are as real as can be - footage of talking heads saying even they are not sure who he really is. And, parallels of what Obama does, & how the WORLD changes because of it.
It is a powerful view of reality, not fiction.
