Storyline

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. Written by jbthoret

Not what I expected
27 January 2019 | by jrneptuneSee all my reviews

I love informative documentaries and noticed this one referencing Active Measure which is one everyone should see.

Gave it a shot but the focus was purely on 1960s and 1970s and the influence it had on the US culture from the point of few of local communities and personalities with some celebrity interviews providing their own commentary.

Interesting to watch but it was underwhelming to me. Might as well spent my time watching Youtube videos.

I did like the segment about Route 66 and the statements made in that piece about the role of government although some might question if it was needed in that instance but it also showed how there is a role as well.
