Anita Hill Documentary Is Essential Viewing to Put the Brett Kavanaugh Hearings in Context – IndieWire

The headline took the words right out of my mouth! 🙂

This really was an Illuminating documentary. Fortunately I got to see it in theater in Bethesda, Maryland, when it came out. I would highly recommended in any case but especially right now I think it would be extremely valuable given the political context of the fraudulent Supreme Court hearings we’re witnessing these days.

I was somewhat politically aware during this episode in American history but watching the documentary was so much more enlightening and I came away from it with both an extremely high amount of respect for Anita Hill and an extremely high amount of disgust and disappointment in our white-male-supremacist political leadership (including the now beloved-by-association Uncle Joe Biden) that continues to infect our politics. It’s time for us to finally rid our American body of this virus don’t you think?

A standout turn from the often under-utilized actor is one of the many joys of this carefully choreographed dinner party satire that acts as a cutting allegory of Trump’s America

I could not have put this any better myself I’m sure.  So I’ll just post this as is.  🙂  I highly endorse the use of the word “savage” in the lede.

I hope you watch the movie and enjoy it!

I watched this movie at a time in my life when I could probably most feel it.  I think it deserves to be linked with Movie Recommendation: The New Age in that context.
