I was one of the 40 some-odd people who were interviewed for this entertaining documentary. Most of the subjects defend Obama, but director Marquis Smalls gives significant screen time to some notable African American Obama-haters too. Its most memorable talking head by far is a woman sitting under a hair dryer in an Atlanta beauty parlor, who metaphorically tears a new one on Cornel West. I’m my usual temporizing self.
I was lucky enough to catch the world premiere at the Urban World Film Festival in New York City this evening. I understand that it will be released to theaters in early 2015. Hopefully it will be shown on TV or made available through Netflix in due course.
