In case you can not pick up on the context clues, Day Of Rage: How Trump Supporters Took The U.S. Capital (2021) is a documentary short produced by the New York Times to illustrate the events that happened on January 6th. These are investigative findings. This is a factual reports that are stitched together to form a cohesive story that is easy to understand and hard to accept.

The story of January 6th is not finished. There are congressional hearings that are still taking place and tangible punishments and consequences are still being contemplated. An event as historically significant as the January 6th is going to have lots of legs; this documentary tells the story of the initial spinning of the web and it did not have the context to show how many areas the web would eventually touch.

It is probably a safe bet that if someone is turning into Day Of Rage: How Trump Supporters Took The U.S. Capital then they have some interest in politics. There are those that care a lot, and there are those that care none at all. Speaking for myself, I minored in political science but I can not allow myself to be consumed by Washington D.C.’s battleground because it is far too depressing. Not a lot of optimism in politics and I don’t do well in permanent negativity.

When January 6th was happening, I found myself doing the classic doom scrolling and being glued to CNN. Not a healthy thing to do. I had to go outside and I literally ran three miles of hills to try and relieve my stress, but it did not work. It was one of those days where I put myself in a bad mental state, and I had not one to blame but myself. It is about limits. In the moment there were so many questions as to how this could be happening, and living in a bubble of constant question marks is not ideal for me.

I needed to to decompress and and I needed to be patient for answers.

The beauty of Day Of Rage: How Trump Supporters Took The U.S. Capital is that for the subject matter, it sticks to the facts. It provides the answers as to how this took place. Now, whether or not someone agrees with the facts is their own problem.

Day of Rage: How Trump Supporters Took the U.S. Capitol is available on YouTube.

Day of Rage: How Trump Supporters Took the U.S. Capitol is naturally divisive because politics is divisive. I am of the point that Day of Rage: How Trump Supporters Took the U.S. Capitol is very well done piece of journalism that sticks straight to the facts. It all depends how you view the facts. No one is going to have their mind changed on how they interpreted the events of January 6th, but Day of Rage: How Trump Supporters Took the U.S. Capitol does the job of telling the factual story of how this day of American history transgressed into a timeless and infamous event.

No. 6Scream 3 (2000) Horror movie franchises tend to jump the shark at some point. Scream 3 (2000) pokes fun at this nature…but also falls into the same trap itself. The setting for Scream 3 is right up my alley. It is set on the set of a horror movie. It is on the set…
