FILM FEATURE

7th November 2020

In 2017, one of the most idiotic, racist, misogynistic jerks ever to run for public office became the President of the United States.

Donald Trump rose through the cult of personality, combined with a fractured and evolving media landscape, plus the ugliest aspects of populism by pandering to the crudest aspects of racial resentment. What films helped us make sense of this chaos?

The defining cinema of the Trump era is still yet to be decided, but SWITCH has collected its reviews for films that provide some indication as to how movies have processed this grim period of North American history.
