Brief word on THE BIG SCARY “S” WORD (2020) DOC NYC 2020


A look at Socialism as viewed in the United States. It is an effort to sort out what it really is, as opposed  to what the the far right says and the far left says.

How you react to this film is going to be determined by how you feel about the subject of socialism and how much you know. While the film is full of stories trying to make the world better for all of us the film is largely a primer on the subject aimed at straightening out everyone's thoughts on the subject. Its a place you should go if you want to get the real skinny on what socialism really is.

For me this was a good film but not wholly my cup of tea. My problem is that I have been having discussions about the nature of socialism for a months as the GOP and even the Democratic Party chaffed at the moves of the far (and even center) left toward this supposed bugaboo. I've been covering a lot of this material so I'm really too close to this to be full objective about it.

That said if you want o know what socialism really is is the place to start.
