Exterminate All the Brutes is a 2021 HBO documentary series by Raoul Peck.

0 out of 10 stars.  This is a very anti-American series that is disorganized and factually inaccurate.  The subtitle leads the viewer into thinking this is about imperialism.  It is not. 

According to Raoul this series is about civilization, colonization, and extermination.  It begins with a reenactment of Native Americans shooting buffalo with bows and arrows.  They actually drove buffalo off cliffs so they’d have enough meat for winter and they didn’t use saddles; they rode bareback.

Then the series includes several 1950s commercials and quotes from Donald Trump and other racists who’ve terrorized the country over the past four years.  Like we haven’t seen enough of this garbage already.  Although Raoul means well, this is disorganized and full of racist rants, but not many facts.  He includes a reenactment of a Seminole tribe’s last stand which also looked very inaccurate.  Then he moves onto himself and includes some childhood photos.  Why?

Instead of parading hate and inaccurate reenactments across the screen, please be meticulous, organized, and accurate.  Have a purpose other than making people hateful.

0 out of 10 stars.  I learned absolutely nothing from the first episode and was disgusted.  We all know there are racists running rampant across the world, but this documentary was supposed to be about imperialism.  The imperialists are England, France, and Spain.  Not the U.S.  If you want to bash the U.S. do it honestly, not filled with inaccuracies.
