I described the feeling of electricity in the air, the manner in which the audience connected with the film on a deep, emotional level and, of course, the standing ovation at the end of the movie.
Stuart asked me whether this wasn’t unusual for a political documentary. I affirmed that it was, especially for a film that has been ignored or treated with scorn by the mainstream media. I mentioned that at some screenings, the audience spontaneously breaks into “G-d Bless America” because Dinesh D’Sousa’s movie is not so much anti-Obama — it’s a deeply nuanced psycho-political portrait — as an affirmation of America’s exceptionalism, a designation President Obama’s policies are designed to erase.
