  1. Riveting and revealing whatever views you have on the partisan issues involved.
  2. Effective piece of election-year propaganda.
  3. 60
    Like the former first lady, the filmmakers go slightly overboard.
  4. Reviewed by: David Edelstein
    60
    A simple, chronological history, narrated with melancholy gravitas by Morgan Freeman.
  5. 50
    In a misguided attempt to break up the monotonous flow of talking heads, the filmmakers have inserted oddly chosen clips from newsreels and public-domain features, meant to illustrate abstract concepts (like eavesdropping or government) while generating some low-level laughs.
  6. 30
    Overwrought and often hysterical, filled with distracting montages and portentous drumbeats, the documentary feels as cheesy as its subject.
