A cynical idea of the US presidential election in 2016. In that period, all that was related to those elections was described by Russian propaganda, which shows the size of the Russian intervention in the 2016 elections. It is a large collection of false news and false tactics that lie in a war called information warfare.
It's ironic that a film damning the use of propaganda is blatantly propaganda itself, as Pozdorovkin lacks the confidence to let the various clips speak for themselves, using obtrusive techniques to spell out the eerie nature of his footage.
In general, the tone is playful and satirical, making use of a quick montage that adapts to the information frenzy and the desire for immediacy that we are currently experiencing. [Full review in Spanish]
Our New President paints a harrowing picture of what it must be like as a citizen dictated by a vain billionaire who has taken away almost all journalistic outlets besides RT and YouTube, which he has filled with trolls.
With no central voice guiding it, it feels aimless, not sure whether it is a horror movie or a comedy. Sometimes it feels like a hard hitting look at Russian media and other times it feels like some absurd parody that we should be laughing at.
Alternately amuses, shocks and enrages, revealing concerted Russian propaganda efforts, backed by Vladimir Putin's state-controlled media, that range from the comically paranoid to the scarily sophisticated.
