Totally Under Control | Oct 2020 (D: Alex Gibney - known for Enron, Going Clear, etc.)

Director Alex Gibney is back with a new documentary. Coming Oct 13 to VOD and Oct 20 on Hulu.



On January 20th, 2020 the US and South Korea both discovered their first cases of COVID-19. However, 9 months later, the novel Coronavirus has claimed the lives of over 200,000 Americans and caused staggering economic damage, while in South Korea, there were no significant lockdowns and, in an urbanized population of 51 million, only 344 lives have been lost. Where did we go wrong? As the presidential election nears, Americans are increasingly enraged by a lack of clear leadership, endemic political corruption and left to wonder how did the wealthiest and most powerful country in the world manage to fail so thoroughly in its response to a global pandemic?

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney, directing with Ophelia Harutyunyan and Suzanne Hillinger, interrogates this question and its devastating implications in Totally Under Control. With damning testimony from public health officials and hard investigative reporting, Gibney exposes a system-wide collapse caused by a profound dereliction of Presidential leadership.

It will be a generation before we know the full extent of the damage wrought by this pandemic, but Totally Under Control will stand as the definitive account of the Trump administrationís incompetence, corruption and denial in the face of this global pandemic.

I watched this on Hulu last week. This movie was apparently completed up to the point where Trump was diagnosed with Covid.

Some really great information and interviews in this film and from people who you haven’t heard from. It will just piss you off how badly our country fucked up. A really solid documentary overall. But there’s stuff in here that anyone who watches the news regularly knows already.

I know most of you are probably sick and tired of Covid news and such, so I don’t expect many here to watch a movie documentary about Covid 19.
