AMERICA: PROMISED LAND REVIEWED
“America: Promised Land” is a prolonged special that attempts to bridge the gaps between History’s features and documentary series. Using high-class restaging and talking head interviews, a wonderful film is created. The end result is a film that wants to show us all how we’re connected and then explain the connections in a friendly manner. Is there anything new here? Well, of course not.
The film’s obsession with migratory pattern is odd, but it’s a way into the mix. I’m not sure if History will take a second stab at this kind of idea. But, it works.
