The opening sequence was so beautiful done, I had hoped this would be another Wild Wild Country, in terms of pace and movement.
But I can't imagine whoever editing the opening also edited the rest of the film. This was the slowest editing I've ever seen, even for a documentary, documentaries themselves being slow by nature.
There are static shots of people that are about to be interviewed,walking towards the camera that last 1:30! Nothing else. Just them walking down the street. Sometimes there is a voice over, sometimes not. It's just painful. Which is a shame because when people do talk they offer incredible insightful views into not only American history, but it's current state of affairs.
It's worth watching for any history buff, or anyonenstill fascinated by the endless ironies of the 2016 election. But as an editor myself I could only take it in sections.

We Blew It
How did America change from Easy Rider into Donald Trump? What became of the dreams and utopias of the 1960's and 1970's? What do the people who lived in that golden age think about it today? Did they really blow it? Shot in Cinemascope - from New Jersey to California - this melancholic and elegiac road-movie draws upon the portrait of a confused, complex and incandescent America one year after the start of the electoral campaign. That golden age has become its last romantic border and an inconsolable America is about to pull on a trigger called Trump.
