Steve Bannon

Occupy Unmasked, a documentary? written and directed by Steve Bannon, Donald Trump’s newly selected Minister of Information. I rented the film from Amazon. It runs 75 minutes and is a waste of time. It is a total mishmash of propaganda against the Occupy Wall Street movement. It is what we can expect from the Trump administration in the future.

The film makes a big deal about supposed Molotov cocktails and shows frequent scenes of rioting and flames in the street. In one scene, I saw a brief glimpse of a sign in Greek. Since we are a nation of immigrants, it could have been filmed in the US, but I think that it was more likely filmed in Athens. The entire documentary? is like that, a jumble of images that cannot be sourced as when, where and why they took place.
