This week, Breitbart News* debuted its first feature-length movie with a wry take on the disgusting spectacle that is the life of Hunter Biden, prostitute chaser, drug abuser, and influence peddler extraordinaire. And the left has lost its tiny hive mind over it.
The film My Son Hunter is not a dry documentary, granted. It is a satirical, docudrama filled with style and panache.
You can get a feel for how this story is told from the hilarious (yet sad) trailer:
The film can be purchased for viewing HERE. It was directed Robert Davi and stars, including Laurence Fox and Gina Carano.
But as Cristian Toto noted, the leftist media has gone war to the hilt against the movie.
The Guardian: The rightwing Hunter Biden movie is for fringe lunatics: Laurence Fox and Gina Carano star in an unhinged low-budget drama based less on fact and more on conspiracy theory.
The Independent: Wherever you happen to fall on the political spectrum, it is often hard to conjure much sincere sympathy for celebrities: a waning Hollywood career would, frankly, be a luxurious problem for most people to have. But it’s hard not to shed a small tear for Carano and Fox, who have made their beds and now seem intent on lying in them – feculent, lice-ridden sheets and all.
Rolling Stone: The right wing’s obsession with the president’s son has taken the form of a feature film filled with strippers and drugs, but nothing of substance (packaged with a listicle of 25 negative reactions to the film…)
The Daily Beast: Why Putin’s Henchmen Are Dying for This American Movie to Debut
Toto had it exactly right when he said:
Why such venom toward an indie movie covering a topic the mainstream media and Big Tech hid during an election cycle? Can’t this story be told? Shouldn’t Hollywood, with its wondrous resources and endless talent pool, have told it first?
Why so scared? Critics routinely review bad movies, but their critiques don’t rise to this level.
The film is far from alone in experiencing such blowback.
All we can say is that all the right people hate this movie.
That means it is over the target!
