Review of “Angry, White and American” (2017)
Seen in 2020.
I saw a 47-minute cut on SVT.

Given the gentle pace and the brief runtime, it’s not a terrible explanatory model, but of course it’s very shallow. Republican Senator Conrad Appel and his neighbour say the most about the state of the political establishment.
