This is turly a story that needs to be told, no matter the consequences. However, due to the political idealologies, the message comes across in a somewhat partisan fashion.
Granted, the issue of illegal aliens has surfaced in a huge way, and although I wholeheartedly agree wit the message Sandoval is sending, I see a few issues with the film.
Truly, a documentary is nearly impossible to create without the director feeling strongly one way or the other. For instance, after the vote to overturn the veto in regards to the creation of a hiring hall is denied, the movie shows the SQL (the grassroots group looking to deport these aliens) singing a bonechilling version of "God Bless America"
Although powerful, these scenes really cut through the audience and leaves an indelible mark.
If you're expecting a documentary that truly slices the issue down the middle, move elsewhere. However, if you're looking for a movie that captures the element of evil and exacerbates it into the SQL, the moving is incredible powerful.
Even though this review sounds somewhat critical, the movie itself should be seen by all, just for the worldly knowledge of life outside of your hometown. I still recommend it.
