      Dan Fienberg Hollywood Reporter Uneven, but full of moments of fascinating process and access. Dec 14, 2022 Full Review Ben Kenigsberg New York Times It provides an unusual opportunity to watch Pelosi negotiate legislation and rally votes. Dec 13, 2022 Full Review Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle “Pelosi in the House” is a one-of-a-kind document of one of the most important women in American history. Rated: 4/4 Dec 13, 2022 Full Review Kathi Wolfe Washington Blade A fascinating must-see. Dec 22, 2022 Full Review Martha K. Baker KDHX (St. Louis) Alexandra Pelosi's homage includes warming humor, but, most of all, it includes Nancy Pelosi's knowing voice and electric self. Dec 21, 2022 Full Review Dennis Harvey 48 Hills Not the most balanced or thorough possible weighing of a long, complex, important career. But in its relatively narrow focus on how a shipshape yet nonetheless elderly politician maintained course during the stormiest seas imaginable... Dec 16, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      W.C. M A fascinating documentary in family movie style that captures insights into a historically significant American political leader in her role as Speaker of the House, culminating in her critical efforts to ensure the Jan 6th insurrectionists would fail in their efforts to overturn the government. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/15/23 Full Review America F A bad movie about one of the worst human beings ever to live. Where is the part about insider trading? Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 10/19/23 Full Review William K I don't understand the low audience ratings?? We thought this was one of the finest documentaries we'd ever seen. It gave an unvarnished and totally honest picture into one of the most powerful and influential women in history. She is shown with all of her flaws and foibles, but also with her genius for making things happen and getting things done. She was able to stand up to the "Old Boys Network" and, for the most part, prevail, carrying herself with confidence and assurance. Terrific film. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/05/23 Full Review Renee M That was the most boring and lopsided account of how the process works. Her vendetta really showed in this. I am now more stupid from having watched this. To know that most all that was stated was disproved shortly after only speaks volumes of how the process came down. This didn't show how the true process works it showed me how one woman with so much hate could destroy a country and laugh about it. Don't waste your time like I did Rated 1 out of 5 stars 07/31/23 Full Review Bartholomew L In our polarised times I'm sure the negative reviews are coming from partisans. This is a fascinating look at how the House of Reps in the US works and what the Speaker or the House does. It's at least great as a civics lesson regardless of your political leanings. It's also quite cringy to see Americans being convinced by the pharmaceutical industry into protesting healthcare reform only for the same people to be protesting 20 years later against vaccines and that very pharmaceutical industry. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Paul A As "Pelosi In the House" (2022 release; 109 min) opens, Nancy Pelosi is walking through the corridors of the US Congress, as her daughter Alexandra, who is filming her, struggles to keep up. We then go to the 2017 swearing-in ceremony of Trump, as Pelosi shows her clear distain, and she is even more explicit in her feelings at Trump's first State of the Union address... Couple of comments: this is the latest documentary from Alexandra Pelosi. Here she brings an insider's view (and ode) to her mother Nancy, the longtime leader of the House Democratic Caucus. Mixing publicly available archive and private footage collected over many years, Alexandra portrays Nancy as a tireless worker. "You can never get tired", Nancy explains. All of it culminates in the passage of ObamaCare in 2010, as Nancy works the phones to collect one vote after another of unconvinced Democrats. The documentary reveals nothing new as such, except that is when we get to the January 6 insurrection, when deranged Trump supporters do what they know best: trying to stop the peaceful transfer of power (and failing, of course). Alexandra brings never before seen footage of members of US Congress (both houses, both parties) being bunkered up in a safe location. Watch how Nancy Pelosi handles the situation... This documentary is currently rated 86% certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, which seems a little high to me. AS for the 1 and 2 star reviews on here, they are not "reviewing" this documentary, but instead are simply making a political comment about their utter disdain of Nancy Pelosi. As Nancy comments in the documentary about the increasingly personal attacks on her from Trump supporters: the only reason they do that is because I am a winner, which they hate". The truth is that this documentary falls somewhere the 86% Rotten Tomatoes rating and those 1 and 2 star ratings from Trump trolls. For an even stronger documentary by Alexandra Pelosi, check out her pervious documentary, 2020's "American Selfie: One Nation Shoots Itself". "Pelosi In the House" premiered on HBO and HOB Max in December, and I finally got around to seeing it. If you have an interest in politics and/or in understanding how the January 6 insurrection affected the workings of the US Congress on both sides of the aisle, I'd readily suggest you check this out and draw your own conclusion.
