Portrait of the Pope and his thoughts on matters beyond the spiritual in today's world. Covering matters of the environment, immigration and poverty the film seeks to explore the depth of the Pope's concerns and showcase his place as a humanitarian working for the good o all mankind

Good if a bit preachy and hagiographic look at the Pope as being more than just a man of God but a man of the people. Full of lots of news footage and talking heads the film is a lot of people telling s what a great guy His Holiness is. There is no doubt that he is great guy but I would have liked prefered a short sit down with the man himself rather than than two hours of his greatest hits. To me this was really good but after awhile I began to lose interest as this seemed more like an infomercial. 

As I said this if good but a tad over long.

Eye opening look at AIPAC, a group of people lobbying in a favor of Israel.  It is a powerful organization  that gives big money to politicians in return for their blind support of Israel (very often voted for aid to Israel go through unchallenged or debated). This is the first time that people on the inside have agreed to sit for an interview in part because of the closeness of the Trump White House to Israel.

This film will make you take a step back and wonder what is going on.SHould any group have this much power over the lawmakers of America especially when they are doing the bidding of a foreign government. While I knew some of this I didn't know the degree to which they hold sway. 

Definitely required viewing, it will make you ponder who is running the government.
