If you’re politically astute and follow have paid attention to Barack Hussein Obama since he appeared on the national scene in 2007, you probably won’t be surprised by much of the film’s contents. D’Souza’s careful explanation of Obama’s worldview, however, is an intriguing story.
2016 is an informative, deliberate documentary that studiously avoids emotionalism. During the film, D’Souza offers his own immigrant story, contrasting it with the President’s strange, un-American upbringing, despite living within the United States for a time. He skillfully guides viewers through interviews with many people who knew Obama’s parents, mentors and friends.
We won’t give away any spoilers here, but we do recommend this movie. For people who don’t pay close attention to politics (and sadly, far too many Americans do not), this may be an important eye-opener. It does bring home the seriousness of America’s foolishness, having elected a President who holds a profoundly anti-American world view.
