Synopsis

Why did Dorothy follow the yellow brick road? Film maker Joel Gilbert journeys across America to find out what's at the end of the Progressive rainbow - Utopia or something far worse? From the ruins of Detroit to the slums of Chicago's South Side, and from Denver's illegal immigration invasion to Newark's urban removal project, Gilbert pulls back the curtain. He confronts Progressives on his quest, and takes us deep into their political fantasy of paradise on earth. There's No Place Like Utopia is a humorous and horrifying exploration of Progressivism, amnesty for illegals, race relations, Islam in America, political correctness, and Barack Obama himself, who promises to "remake the world as it should be." But is Utopia a real destination for America? Or, does the true path to happiness still remain faith, family, and hard work - back home in Kansas? —Production

Angry guy makes video

I always find this sort of thing amusing: If you're going to use film as a vehicle to list your grievances and make an intellectual argument for or against something, you had better know how to construct and make a film really well. Otherwise, maybe just write a paper for your community college professor?

Seriously, if you don't know how to use film as a language and full understand filmmaking in general, then you shouldn't do this sort of thing.

When you're going to make a "documentary" like this, you really need to know how to academically lay out your argument while showing things onscreen that simply illustrate your more complicated point. You also want to be able to freely and fairly examine as many sides to your argument in case there are gaping holes in it, etc. (I strongly recommend doing that last one!)

This film sure could use another year or two back in film school just to get back to understanding some basics.

Despite what this was supposed to be about, it was assembled so poorly that it came across as laughable and juvenile. If you have a product to sell, or an idea, you gotta come at me with your best. This film did nothing to woo me and that is a terrible mistake in this genre.

Unaswerable expose of liberalism,

A little over the top and repetitive (the Wizard of Oz thing), but still plenty factual and for the most part interesting and well paced. The interviews are amusing and varied while the backgrounds (the various places visited) decisively back up the filmmaker's contention that liberalism and the modern day democratic party are the current form of the bubonic plague. The only way the liberals/socialists/communists can answer this (see the two idiot reviews)is by spewing their standard straw man crap - "It's racist!" etc. It isn't racist at all, by the way. Detroit alone pretty much says it all - the democratic party gold-standard city. Commie utopias are responsible for the murder of millions and millions, and the Democratic party is just the next, or should I say current, manifestation.

Straw Man Argument

This so-called *filmmaker attempts to make a spurious argument, but does not find support for any of his points. His logical fallacies, including Slippery-Slope, are a tortured attempt to link things that are unrelated. A complete waste of time.
