Storyline

USA THE MOVIE is an independent landmark, a fictional drive through reality, a prophetic journey into the future of humanity. One of the main elements is Kirk, a comfortable "All American" traveler who awakens from blissful ignorance into painful awareness of the world. He grows increasingly confused and destructive, fulfilling his destiny as the instrument of ultimate extinction. Real scenes of his physical and emotional breakdown, which were captured during filming, act as a thread between fiction and reality. USA THE MOVIE is a journey inside the essence of a Superpower; a country that shocks the world with its might, bringing out envy, anger and hatred in the hearts of other nations. The film deliberately utilizes the feel of sweeping epic, independent drama, historic newsreel and gritty verite' to tell the story. Evocative visuals, masterful sound, and poetry create a sublime sense of simplicity. Unique and diverse speeches that catalyzed the destruction of nations, provoked the ... Written by Anonymous

When we were blue
23 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

The whole shorthand for supposedly being more aware in this weird time is that you are "Blue". The Blue State mentality. This is supposed to get us off the hook for what is/was happening during the last few years in our country (The USA). It doesn't get anyone off the hook but it makes us feel better, as though we aren't benefiting in any way from living here and getting all the good stuff that a US citizen gets just by being a US citizen.

But I'm so sick of bitching about this. It doesn't do any good. I haven't taken much action lately and I wonder how many people have. Maybe I'm just down because my job was "outsourced" last month and now I'm looking for work in the shrinking tech support field where most of the jobs are quickly going to India and other places overseas. I'm thinking that soon it's not going to pay off to be a citizen here with the screwed up infrastructure and the shrinking job market and the obsession with war. These days it seems like anyone who speaks out gets jumped and questioned about there "patriotism". Anyway, back to this review: USA The Movie is an obscure DVD that makes me realize that some people have taken action, whether it's through politics, protesting or arts or media. The filmmaker is obviously passionate, knowledgeable, willing to go outside the norm, frustrated, unique, astute etc.

I looked through the whole site that's linked to the DVD and got lost in all the articles, essays etc.that are there. The DVD does that too, has references to different times, views and historical points. Sometimes someone does something out there.
