I've known bits and pieces of the Russia / brexit / trump story, but never been able to connect all the dots. They took a very complicated story and told it in a clear and meaningful way. Well researched and th interviews were amazing. Everyone should watch!
Must see movie (by kgbeasley)
All citizens of the US and the world need to see this documentary.
Very well laid out (by zerosdontcount-42943)
Some of the reviews here claiming this is propoganda are clearly politically motivated. This documentary is a great history lesson into how Russia has influenced the Ukraine, Georgia, UK, USA, and others. It goes through real evidence of Trump organizations money laundering schemes with Russian oligarchs over the past 30 years. People leaving bad reviews don't dispute the facts, they just leave bad reviews. Fascinating documentary.
Frightening - but a must watch. (by hatefullyemployed)
This documentary traces out acts the Russians have taken over the years to undermine democracy and how much of it directly ties to Trump. It's well done, paced nicely. Worth the watch for sure.
Excellent lesson in reality (by matthew_giordano)
This movie provides plenty of examples that the events occurring in the US right now are not some new, unprecedented thing. The Russians have executed the same tactics in multiple places around the world...dividing the populace, preying upon nationalistic fears, and a steady feed of propaganda. It's a fascinating documentary and a must watch to get an idea of what we are currently facing.
The Cold War continues (by jeberjabber)
I was an intelligence analyst for the Army Security Agency during the Cold War. The methods and goals exposed in this documentary on the part of Russia haven't changed all that much in the last 40 years. When it was thought that the old Soviet Union's demise meant the end of the Russian aspirations to rule the planet, America let its guard down. We're now paying the price for that. I hope education and exposure will enable us to fight back and repel Russian activities in our country.
It's Good (by bthwaithe)
I happen to know all of what's in the movie because 1 I'm retired and retired farts like me have time to read. 2 I lived in Manhattan for 20 years & am well acquainted with who and what Donald Trump is. 3 I studied Russian in college in NYC in the 1990s and know the type of people who poured into Brooklyn thanks to glasnost & perestroika. When it comes to this topic, it's kind of right up my alley.But most people don't know the real Donald Trump or have the time to do all the reading I've done . They've got jobs, young kids, car trouble, bills, a million <more>
things to deal with. So I recommend they watch this film. It's fast moving and it's an overview. It doesn't bog down in minute details, which means it's not boring. It quickly & easily explains money laundering something the Trump Organization has pled guilty to in the past , so that's a relief because some people's eyes glaze over and think "I don't want to have to take a class in finance." So you've got an overview of what's going on and most people need that in order to be informed voters. The reason I gave it 8 and not 10 stars is because the closed captioning is crappy. Sometimes the film sounds fuzzy, so I needed captions but they blended into the background too many times to be effective. I also didn't like the music interfering with the story. It's a bit loud & urgent sounding, and we can do without that. But in this film you will find out who the major players are and what has gone on for the last 30 or so years. You don't have to listen to me - you can take Don Trump Jr's word for it. In 2008 he said, ""Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross section of a lot of our assets. We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia." Or take the word of Erik Trump who said in 2014 "We don't rely on American banks. We have all the funding we need out of Russia ." Meanwhile their father says, "I have nothing to do with Russia." Reallly? He'd better talk to his sons, because they've been withholding vital info from him for years, lol.
Set aside your Skepticism (by boatontheriver-85742)
I thought this might be a propaganda film put out by the far left, but after viewing, I found it was anything but. This is a must see for any American who wants the truth. Yes, I only gave it an 8, because there is still so much more to the story. I'm truly afraid that there may be more Compromised Leaders in America's future. This isn't a Republican or Democrat thing, it's an issue which is damaging to all Freedom loving people around the world.
Only if you wish to know... (by gusfs63)
As someone who spent 94/95 in Russia, and who has followed developments since, this movie accurately describes the mindset of Putin, the collaboration of Trump, and 'active measures' undertaken by the Russians to undermine Western democracies especially using social media. You should watch this!
