Errol Morris‘s American Dharma, which will debut at the Venice Film Festival, is a documentary about a “dialogue” with Steve Bannon. Which obviously implies Bannon riffing on this and that aspect of the Trump malignancy and Morris capturing each and every word and maybe challenging the narrative here and there.
The concern, of course, is that Morris won’t reveal the other side of Bannon’s face and will more or less allow him to expound a la The World According to Dick Cheney (’13). Half of me wants to see American Dharma, of course, but the other half is suspicious and anxious. The Hindu definition of “dharma” is “the principle of cosmic order.”
