Anyway, I wouldn't say this was a *great* documentary, but it's certainly a good one and well worth watching.

This is divisive propaganda - full of emotional appeals with no logic.

This tells me tons of small minded conservatives, who most likely didn't even watch the film, are desperately trying to paint the film as propaganda.

There are some pacing issues where the film feels really slow and awkward especially around AOC and her partner which, while humanizing is kind of unnecessary and makes the film feel longer than it needs to be.

Insightful, Gripping .

Waste of time .

Enjoyable documentary torn between portraying a movement and a person .

The other user reviews giving 1/10 are literally propaganda reviewing some caricature of Democrats or left leaning people in general rather than the film itself.

Fascinating to see her developing a political style and joining a movement to change the system.

But otherwise, KDtH was an engaging piece.

This one is all about the the expected loss of many and the unexpected win of one.

Some of the reviews are saying that this is "downright propaganda" and filled with "radical leftist" etc. etc., and I, quite honestly, didn't see any of that.

Every moment of this film is gripping.

Worth Watching .

It makes the entire films seem somewhat like a propaganda exercise.

Political propaganda is getting worse and people are just gobbling it up.

Uninspiring Film about an Inspiring Person .

Waste of time .
