The one "problem" with Mayer's Dark Money is that it is a very long book that is virtually impenetrable to all but the most dedicated reader. My wife was a bit intimidated by the book so I thought this movie would be like "cliff notes" for the book. Boy was I wrong!
Of all of the Koch brothers' wrongs, this documentary highlights the least interesting and the least harmful of them. These "wrongs" are presented as if they are crimes against humanity: apparently, the very nature of being rich is wrong according to this documentary.
I am fairly confident that the director and producers of this movie were funded by the Koch brothers in order to discredit their opposition. This movie is so boring, devoid of any evidence-based criticism of the Koch brothers, and cheesy that the only purpose it serves is to make the Koch brothers' opposition look like crackpots.
I was hoping this movie would be a summary of Dark Money, but what I watched was a train-wreck that wasted my time (and my wife's time) and wouldn't convince a Bernie Sanders supporter that the Koch brothers were anything more than rich billionaires trying to grow their business.
The narration is excellent, including not only "Libs"...the Kochs themsleves, in clips, drive the action.
If anyone thinks that Walker in Wisconsin, or any other "Tea Party" exponent across the country, made it to the big dance by grassroots efforts, then think again. And again.
AFP (Americans For Prosperity) can be called another Koch "Front Group" and is another movement for a return to segregation...to voter suppression...to keep driving up the Social Security age. Another Koch-friendly acronym: ALEC (an "exchange" [in lieu of "lobby"] between Koch and legilsators).
Further, Foxnews, may be seen as a kind of unofficial media outlet for Koch muse.
Anyone thinks that the Libs control Education in this country...well, look at the amazing list of uppercrust schools to receive J-B bucks. (Perhaps the impression that the Universities are still, geneerally, not in a hard-right mode suggests that students, parents, educators are saying, keep your freaking money).
Further, if you think that these dudes have had no effect on the environment... (No wonder "deregulation" is a Newscorp mantra-word).
You may enjoy this effort simply for the "I knew that these guys were running the destroy Obama machine!" payoff.
I can't help thinking, though it was not the movie's intent, that it makes an excellent case for inheritance taxes (Paris Hilton is another icon of the cause), which would at least have trimmed some of their fun.
All in all, I didn't learn much that I didn't know already, but the movie did help focus my disgust with these two. The scene of a Brother rubbing his hands in glee at the mayhem he'd helped create is an image that will stick with me for a long time. Shame on them.
