The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020)

The Trial of the Chicago 7 dives deep in the events around the 1968 Democratic National Convention as a group of individuals are tried for crossing state lines to insight violence in another state. The movie is based on a true story pulling examples from the real court trial. The movie begins with the initiation of the trial, and tells the story in a number of flashbacks as the trial progresses.

Javier lays out a plan for a new style of electing officials. JJ finds a new life mantra. Ian’s sees “the system” in a new light.

    Wow, what an awesome history lesson this movie was. Definitely going to use it as an example when people tout the “progress” we have made as human beings. Since Mattson wasn’t on the podcast I’ll take care of bringing up Bill and Ted for him as a matter of principal for JJ’s Borat comment haha. Yeah though, this movie was one big giant punch to the solar plexus. I hated it and loved it all at the same time. Great pick whoever suggested it! Keep the episodes coming guys! This is the best way to start the week!

      As always Alec, we appreciate you listening and very much enjoy your comments and insights. This movie was definitely an eye opener in terms of our history repeating itself for sure. Now, about that Borat comment. First of all, don’t encourage Mattson. Second, Sacha Baron Cohen’s personal comedy is a bit of enigma. He uses extremely stupid humor to make valid commentary about many shortcomings in our world. That commentary is genius. The comedy is very stupid. Now leave Bill and Ted out of it! haha
