Donald Trump - Donald Trump Documentary Opens In New York Today To Favourable Reviews

Donald Trump, one of the world's richest men, was documented by Anthony Baxter as he attempted to turn one of the loveliest natural coastlines of Britain into a golf course. This was back in 2005, and the documentary attempted to explore Trump's ruthlessness in his pursuit of dominance. The battle became a David vs. Goliath duel, in effect, with the locals making a stand against the mogul in a desperate attempt to keep their surroundings the way they were meant to be.
The documentary finally debuted in a New York cinema today, with a Los Angeles debut on August 17th, according to Entertainment Weekly, and reviews have been flooding in, with the result being a largely favourable response to Baxter's documentary. "Mr. Trump comes across as an insensitive, lying bully who will do whatever it takes to realize his dream of creating what he promises will be the world's greatest golf resort," writes the New York Times. The Village Voice meanwhile points out that Trump's portrayal is representative of Americans abroad in general, claiming "Donald Trump is the face of America here, representing all of us and demonstrating our values abroad. Hopefully this sharp rendering, or something very much like it, is the legacy for which he and his family will be remembered."
Salon.com, meanwhile, offers "As Baxter demonstrates with agonizing, unflinching clarity, the result was a community and a land that were literally rolled over in the name corporate greed - and with the apparent blessing of the local authorities."
