Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

No stranger to sitting down with some of the most controversial figures of our time, Errol Morris trains his lens on Stephen K. Bannon. In their wide ranging conversation spanning over 16 hours, Morris questions Bannon on his background, belief system, his worldview, his current feelings on President Trump, and how films such as Henry King's TWELVE O'CLOCK HIGH, John Ford's THE SEARCHERS, and Orson Welles' CHIMES AT MIDNIGHT became part of Bannon's understanding of the world. Frank and unflinching, Morris grapples with his own contention of Bannon's ideology and methodology. With AMERICAN DHARMA, Morris proposes that even for those who disagree with Bannon, ignoring him is a dangerous course of action.

There’s a striking similarity in how American Dharma and Fahrenheit 11/9 end, with the confident prediction that a revolution is coming, if it is not already here. Moore and Bannon are talking about opposite insurgencies, but they both see a country on the verge of explosion. Moore wants to light a match, and Morris wants to snuff one out.

American Dharma is meant to leave its audience shaken, whatever side they’re on.

The result is a fascinating but also in some ways frustrating film, a game of tag that looks resoundingly cinematic but feels like more of a cable or VOD prospect - not least because it lacks the killer punch, the Bannon stumble or revelation that would make American Dharma newsworthy.
