Storyline

This observational documentary follows the men behind the Super-PACs that persuaded Dr Ben Carson to run for President. Believing Carson can save the Republican Party, they successfully draft him to run, raise millions of dollars and catapult him to the top of the polls. However, as Carson's political inexperience begins to show, his constant media gaffes make fundraising increasingly difficult. Donors and voters abandon Carson's campaign as wallets close, hearts open and faith is tested. As Trump inexplicably rises, the campaign descends into chaos and the PACmen begin to wonder - did they pick the wrong savior?

Politic Icarus
18 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

Saw it the other day and it's a really good doc about the reality in States and the popular phenomenon that can dictate people that will have a significant way on peoples lives. Down and fall like in all movies and TV series. Definitely a doc by the hand of Luke Walker and his way of telling a story.
