Sarah Palin: You Betcha

JOY REVIEW

This is a documentary film made by a Brit, and depending on how you feel about Sarah Palin, you’re either going to view Nick Broomfield as the anti-Christ or as a truth teller. The interesting thing about this is that most of the people interviewed are interviewed twice, and they’re her close staff: her legislative aid, her campaign manager. The picture you come away with is Sarah Palin is very attractive, and basically a pathological liar. I’m not sure how that separates her out from any other politician, but this is a chilling documentary about somebody who came very close to being maybe even the President of the United States, in terms of duplicity, and in terms of how a pretty face can convince anybody of anything. Three stars.
