With less than 100 days to go until Election Day, Netflix is adding two liberal movies to its offerings.
"Funny or Die Presents: Donald Trump's The Art of the Deal: The Movie" is a satirical look at Donald Trump's famous book. The film features a star-studded lineup, including cameos from Patton Oswalt, Henry Winkler, Ron Howard, Christopher Lloyd and Kristen Schaal. Johnny Depp has the lead role, playing Donald Trump. Having watched the first half of the film, I can tell you it depicts Trump as a racist buffoon.
The other new liberal film is Al Gore's famous 2006 documentary about climate change, "An Inconvenient Truth." The film won the Academy Award in 2006 for Best Documentary Feature.
Netflix also added "How to Win the U.S. Presidency" on Monday, which seems to be an unbiased documentary on presidential election history. Netflix describes the film as "provocative" and "irreverent," but the portions I saw paled in comparison to the irreverence of "Funny or Die Presents: Donald Trump's The Art of the Deal: The Movie."
New additions aside, Netflix also has "Mitt," a behind the scenes look at Mitt Romney's 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns. For the more intellectually-inclined, "Best of Enemies" is a documentary on the Gore Vidal vs. William F. Buckley Jr. debates of 1968. And then there's "Requiem for the American Dream," a documentary where Noam Chomsky describes his views on economic inequality.
Or, you could just watch seven seasons of "The West Wing."
