We went to see "obama 2016". You would not have believed how many people showed up to see this documentary. Every seat in the theater was filled, even though there had been an earlier showing that day, and more showings were scheduled for the rest of the afternoon and evening. We had to sit way down front - (I don't like sitting that close to the screen. It gives me a sore neck, and eye strain).
The audience was riveted. You could barely hear a sound from them, or detect a movement, and certainly not smell Popcorn. Yet the movie had no bombast, no violence, no sex and no spectacular visual effects.
Everyone was so quiet. I don't think they were even breathing. No one wanted to miss a word. It was refreshing to see how addressing adults as adults could be effective, in an age when so many parts of the Media address the public as if they were children who need a constant whirlwind of sounds and Movements to keep them interested. After the show everyone clapped. I haven't seen that many people in a movie theater since I was a teenager; or hear the audience start clapping at the end. The movie didn't try to put obama down; it just told how obama came to his Third World perspective of America and the facts about his life. How he came to be the person he is today. I hope you go to see it before they stop running it. ... Jack London
