About this movie

ACTIVE MEASURES chronicles the most successful espionage operation in Russian history, the American presidential election of 2016. Filmmaker Jack Bryan exposes a 30-year history of covert political warfare devised by Vladmir Putin to disrupt, and ultimately control world events. In the process, the filmmakers follow a trail of money, real estate, mob connections, and on the record confessions to expose an insidious plot that leads directly back to The White House. With democracy hanging in the balance, ACTIVE MEASURES is essential viewing. Unraveling the true depth and scope of "the Russia story" as we have come to know it, this film a jarring reminder that some conspiracies hide in plain sight.

Active Measures has a lot of detailed information and interviews from a variety of people. At times I had a hard time remembering who the different interview subjects were. I wish they had put their names and titles under their faces every time they spoke. Occasionally one would make a provocative statement that would be significant if it were made by a former CIA director, but ended up not being so because it was a Vanity Fair editor. The responses to the interview subjects in this film are strung together artfully to create a plausible narrative, but it is unclear whether the subjects would actually support the obvious supposition, that Trump has been in league with the Russians since his financial crisis in the nineties. Former Secretary Clinton has publicly supported the film, so that adds some credibility. Overall, I am glad I watched it and will watch it again. As a viewer, consider yourself to be a jurist in the case of the century. Look for reasonable doubt. They make a pretty good case, and I hope the court of public opinion takes a good hard look.
