Brief thoughts on Against All Enemies (2023) Tribeca 2023

This is a look at how military and police are being radicalized by the far right and militias and how this radicalization helped the January 6th Insurrection happen.

Good look at the hows and whys of how people are joining the violent hateful right. It's a film that makes clear why it's happening and what we have to do to try and stop it. 

I like this film a great deal for what it tells us. We need to hear and see what is happening. What works against my absolutely being  over the moon about it is that the film is a bit too matter of fact. As vital as the film's subject is there isn't enough of sense of urgency. Yes the information will anger and horrify you but the presentation may not move you.

Reservations aside the message is important enough to recommend the film
