In recent years, it has become apparent to the general public that the political and military elites in Venezuela, and in most other countries where the US is backing 'democracy', have become increasingly corrupt and incompetent. This film was shot in 1999 and looks at the two main actors of the film, president Hugo Chavez and the socialist movement leader Leopoldo Lopez. It's very interesting to see both how they are portrayed by the film makers, and how their characters and actions are portrayed in the media. They both come across as quite arrogant and overconfident, and make good money from the media and campaign finance. They both do a lot of 'big talk', which is good, but how they keep their mouths shut and what they say is bad, and they are both considered 'troublemakers'. One of the most interesting scenes in the film involves Lopez on camera with a reporter, and as he leaves, he says: 'This is not just about me and my organisation. It's about the whole nation. We are all behind Chavez.' The film makers are obviously aware of this, and give Lopez plenty of time to explain to the media that he was just 'calling all the shots', but then there is another scene in which Lopez is shown in a university auditorium, and he is telling his story about how he got involved in the movement and how he got into politics. It's very interesting to see this interview, and to hear how the media treat him as a 'dear leader'. Lopez is told that he is going to be invited to the White House, and he is a big fan of the US. He has been told that he is not going to be a politician, but a 'citizen' and is therefore considered 'not a problem'. He is shown walking out of the studio, with the media following, with his head held high. He is also told he will not be allowed to get involved in politics, and that he must 'manage' his behaviour in private, because it is 'very dangerous'. As he leaves the studio, the cameras are still on him, and he is told he must behave himself, as he will be 'surrounded' by media and people. As he walks off, the cameraman pulls his head back, and says: 'This is a mistake, because he is going to be surrounded by people who are against him'. Lopez nods and looks on as he is told this. The film makers do not seem to be aware of this, and give Lopez a lot of room to talk about his politics and actions, and to just tell his story. He seems like a nice guy, who is just being an asset to the movement, and the media seem to believe he is just being a 'good-hearted' guy. He gets a lot of positive press, and gets all the credit and the cameras, and he is regarded as 'the man who got the country out of recession'. However, when the interview is finished, and he is put in front of the cameras again, he is asked: 'Do you know what's wrong with the country?' He says: 'The country is being destroyed.' The media interviewer says: 'Is that a statement of fact?' The response is: 'Yes.' It is very clear that the media thinks that he is an idiot and that they want to keep
