Dinesh D'Souza's 2016

Last night my wife and I decided at the last second to see the documentary movie 2016.

This was the very first movie I attended in years in which:
  • No cell phone went off;
  • No one played with their cell phone or texted;
  • No one talked; 
  • No one got up to leave early or go to the bathroom;
  • No one dropped their soda or rustled in their seats.
I have never been part of a movie audience that was so attentive as to what was on the screen. No matter how complex the message, the degree of attentiveness did not waver.

Usual multiplex movie viewing experience distractions:  None.

Unnerving was the portion of the movie which spoke of Obama's views of colonialism and the Muslim world and how those views and all the olive branches extended to that world still have not stopped the hostility of Muslim extremists towards the United States. The movie and book have been out far longer than last week's brutal assassination of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and the multiple attacks on American Embassies in 20 countries.

If you wish to see this movie, go see it.  Common Sense 10th gives it 5 stars.
