Description An extraordinary look into the controversial political career of Imelda Marcos. As the former first lady of the Philippines, Imelda Marcos is best known for her opulent lifestyle, but it was her behind-the-scenes influence of her husband's presidency that rocketed her to the global political forefront. A journey through the Marcos family's long history of corruption, extravagance and brutality, this documentary tells a cautionary tale of a powerful female leader whose questionable sense of reality divided a nation.

It's a gripping, thought-provoking documentary, but not all of the arguments presented are new to the English-speaking world. From the so-called "fake news" of this past election, to the "post-truth" politics of the current White House, this film shows how some of the most essential issues are being, for better or worse, obscured by a culture of self-delusion. The fact that the main narrative in this film was a direct statement against a Russian election-hacking narrative, is just one example of how some of these issues are not being addressed. Some of the more interesting arguments are offered by the two leading Democrats, who are also the two men who helped to push through the Senate a bill that would have essentially banned any further government interference with our electoral process. However, despite the fact that both men are well known political figures, they are not given the space to be very convincing. This is not the case with their Republican counterparts. Gary Stein, who was the chief executive of the Republican National Committee, has a very strong, persuasive case for why the American electoral system should be fixed. The reason is simple, he argues, and it's one that would allow the Republicans to retain control of the House of Representatives. The film's best moments come from Paul Ryan, the Speaker of the House. In a powerful speech, he argues that "the American people were cheated" by Donald Trump, and he has the perfect arguments for why Trump should not become the next President of the United States. The problem with his arguments is that, despite being a highly decorated military man, he doesn't seem to have the personal experience that a President should have to be able to bring such an impressive array of disparate opinions together. On the whole, I would recommend the Kingmaker for those who are interested in the issues that are still relevant today, but don't necessarily want to see a documentary about them.
