There's No Place Like Utopia (2014)

An American documentary by Joel Gilbert.
The filmmaker travels in America and interviews people about progressivism, communism, socialism and how The Wizard of Oz relates to Barack Obama.
I think that there may have been too much humor involved in this film and not enough focus on the subject matter. Joel haphazardly visits various places and talks to people, including bad areas like detroit with abandoned buildings. The concept behind the film of "look where this got us" is something that I approve of, but I don't think it was done very well. It seemed like it was supposed to be more entertainment than education. I rate this poor. You may want to skip it.
