The war zone

There is no denying this is a seriously powerful piece of film.

But is it a great ad? I'm not so sure.

Those who oppose Trump will very obviously nod their heads in agreement throughout.

But for those who support him this ad reinforces why they support him.

I'm not giving an opinion on US politics. It's way too complex.

But what's needed are ads the get Trump supporters to change their minds.

And films like this sadly are not going to do that. No matter how well intentioned.
