    The Rachel Divide

    ★★★½

    Not an overly compelling documentary on the surface but endlessly fascinating as a jumping off point to discuss race.

    Dolezal has a complex story that seemed to be glossed over when she was first revealed. Does that justify her actions? Does she leverage her family as a scapegoat? I do not have the answers but enjoy the thought process.

    ★★★★½

    Hoped it would be hilarious and it delivered. The only mild disappointment is that I've been binging on his SNL and talk show appearances, which resulted in spoiling some of the jokes.

    I can't help but think this role would be better served by someone 5 years older and 2 feet taller BUT Radcliffe does a nice job of filling the role. His outbursts whenever he felt about to get caught always felt like a flash of brilliance.

    On the whole, a fairly disturbing film if you think about it in the context that these people actually exist and that our current US political climate is probably fanning their flames.

    ★★★★½

    If I were a more eloquent individual I could wax on about how powerful and important this movie is. The story of such a huge dissent told while it is happening is a bit unreal. I wish there were some uplifting message at the end about governments reigning it in but I saw none.

    Must see for anyone. Period.
