2016: Obama's America

This slick documentary is custom-designed for rabidly conservative Republicans who want to alternately frighten/comfort themselves with the image that in four years, under the leadership of President Barack Obama, America will be a postapocalyptic hellscape in which people are forced to give up their guns, worship Allah and join the Communist Party. Author and political commentator Dinesh D'Souza turns his best-selling tome The Roots of Obama's Rage into a talking-head screed about how "breathtakingly anti-American" the guy who's governed our country for the last four years still is. Obviously, D'Souza's only preaching to the choir here, recycling all the usual accusations. To his credit, at least he doesn't entertain the birther movement. Still, it is from the producers who brought us the pro-Creationist doc Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. So, take it with a pillar of salt. 87 minutes PG.
