Critics' reviews
  • "Esta película no describe la América que me enseñaron en las clases cívicas, o en la que pienso cuando prometo lealtad a la bandera. Sé que recibiré los típicos emails acusándome de partidario, de sesgado, de contar sólo un lado, etc. ¿Cuál es el otro lado? Vean esta película, y después me lo dicen. (...) Rating: ★★★★ (out of 4)."
