We are really living in a clown world when AOC is getting any significant support. Such unintelligent person as AOC can produce worst results even with best intentions with her biggest attribute which is incompetence.

AOC is an anomaly, a sign that any incompetent and self-important person can rise to become a member of the government. Inane non-solutions coupled with identity politics, her arguments make no sense and don't resolve any problem. A bookAOC is an anomaly, a sign that any incompetent and self-important person can rise to become a member of the government. Inane non-solutions coupled with identity politics, her arguments make no sense and don't resolve any problem. A book could be written with her stupid quotes such as "We Need to ‘Invent Technology That’s Never Been Invented’. Thanks AOC but you should go back to bar-tending or selling nachos or whatever she's qualified for. Expand

Ms Communist Alexandria should stay away from White House. Her deal failed few weeks ago, her ideology failed many years ago several times. Bye

AOC is a moron. She comes across like a junior-high student (or a psychedelic-addled hippy) confronting politicians with ill-conceived solutions to serious issues. Everybody knows that climate change is something we need to tackle. TheAOC is a moron. She comes across like a junior-high student (or a psychedelic-addled hippy) confronting politicians with ill-conceived solutions to serious issues. Everybody knows that climate change is something we need to tackle. The question is: HOW? AOC provides no sensible insight. The New Green Deal (despite good intentions) is the stupidest thing I've ever seen in politics.

Why is the left embracing Clinton and AOC? Makes less sense than the right embracing Trump. The United States is going crazy. Why are all the politicians either corrupt or morons, or both?

For most of the time, Knock Down The House serves as a refreshingly personal and uplifting exploration of it's subjects, and their successes. It's focus on AOC as the show's pinhead is understandable, but the inclusion of the other women is ultimately just as interesting - I hope that they are remembered too. The show provides an exceptional analysis of of each of their backgrounds, campaigns, and successes, in such a way that each of their personalities and principles are communicated to the viewer clearly and most of all: naturally, rather than feeling like political canvasing strategy. It's hopeful and optimistic outlook makes a welcome break from the bleak pessimism that has engulfed much of the analysis of the Trump era, and thus makes for much easier and enjoyable viewing. All in all, Knock Down The House is an inspiring personal, and pertinent film, that above all, instils hope in both it's subjects, and the power of individual determination itself. This is empowering documentary film-making done right. Expand

This documentary shows that movements don't happen overnight, but they are built upon hours and hours of sacrifice. These 4 women ran not because they wanted power for themselves, but to bring it back to their constituents. EntrenchedThis documentary shows that movements don't happen overnight, but they are built upon hours and hours of sacrifice. These 4 women ran not because they wanted power for themselves, but to bring it back to their constituents. Entrenched politicians, that are out of touch, don't simply have to be in power because "that's the way things are"; they can be challenged. Even a top ranking Democrat, with millions from wealthy donors, and big money interests, are unable to withstand the power of working people banding together. Incredibly moving, and powerful storytelling. If you need something to fight the constant cynicism, watch this film. Expand

First, anyone that gave this movie a zero clearly has no interest in ever watching it.

It's not the best doc ever but it was well done and fascinating to watch for political junkies like myself. And, it really wasn't political at all.

In the current political climate the barrage of negative reviews isKnock Down the House focuses on the primary campaigns of four progressive Democrats attempting to challenge the establishment and make their mark in the political world. In the current political climate the barrage of negative reviews is hardly surprising, and I suspect a good number of the people posting them didn't even bother watching the movie. For those of you that can put petty political allegiances aside however the stories, particularly that of Ocasio-Cortez, are inspiring and its good to see that their are still people in politics that are genuinely interested in helping their constituents rather than lining their own pockets.

I wanted to see more of each campaign, I wanted to spend more time with each candidate, but the short runtime prevents that. Expand
