Overview

Journeys with George

Alexandra Pelosi worked as a television producer in 1999. Her mother, Nancy Pelosi, was then a congresswoman who would one day ascend to one of the most powerful positions in the government. Alexandra followed around then Governor George W. Bush for over a year during his campaign for the Presidency. Her video diary was turned into the documentary Journeys With George, which comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that preserves the original aspect ratio of the film. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo, and a Spanish soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Mono. There are no supplemental materials of any consequence, but this documentary is still worthwhile for anyone with an interest in the subject matter.

The Real George W. Bush is in this movie with all his goofiness and seduction. There is an inherent cruel side as well when he when he beat the hell out of John McCain (not that I have much sympathy for McCain besides his war record), but its there with his anti-intellectualism but not stupidity as most reporters thought, including Ms. Pelosi. That's why Bush has gotten a pass for so long.

A fascinating portrait of evangelical America by Alexandra Pelosi, daughter of Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi. Alexandra has the unique ability of a documentary filmmaker to get subjects to talk to her on-camera to reveal themselves and makes them feel at ease doing it. Her portrait of Ted Haggard is worth seeing in and of itself. Frauds like Haggard need to be outed and denounced. There are all too many simple American evangelicals who have been betrayed by shysters like Ted Haggard. Superchurch pastors like Joel Osteen, also examined by Pelosi, exploit and take advantage of simple believing folks by their fancy words and charisma. Such ministers start out wanting to do good for others and end up doing very well for themselves. I believe there is a special place in Hell just waiting for these charlatans. Pelosi paints a good portrait of evangelical Americans who are charlatans and frauds; one must remember that there are many good evangelical Americans - both ministers and church members - who are all too often overshadowed by the charlatans and frauds.
