The meaning of his speech is important because it is very current, and is reminiscent of JFK's speech, "...Ask not what your country can do for you, Ask what you can do for your country." The message invites the viewer to examine why we are not using our own resources-ourselves-to examine illusions that are used as manipulators of a democracy that has broken down. Throughout the film, the director shows an inflamed public that mirrors the soul of most Americans, but who feel helpless in relying on leaders who do not deliver, hence the reverberant rallying cry of the hero to "wake-up." The relief from all the anger comes when he delivers his heartfelt speech authentically, reminding us of the potential and responsibility we have in a democracy instead of feeling helpless to change it. We can not escape it.
The film uses a combination of found footage, black and white, and color film and blends them together meaningfully to create an excellent mood. Let this film wash over you and enjoy. Then, take some time to think for yourself. About everything.
