On January 20th, 2020 the US and South Korea both discovered their first cases of COVID-19. However, 9 months later, the novel Coronavirus has claimed the lives of almost 200,000 Americans and caused staggering economic damage, while in South Korea, there were no significant lockdowns and, in an urbanized population of 51 million, only 344 lives have been lost. Where did we go wrong? As the presidential election nears, Americans are increasingly enraged by a lack of clear leadership, endemic political corruption and left to wonder how did the wealthiest and most powerful country in the world manage to fail so thoroughly in its response to a global pandemic? Academy Award-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney, directing with Ophelia Harutyunyan and Suzanne Hillinger, interrogates this question and its devastating implications in Totally Under Control. With damning testimony from public health officials and hard investigative reporting, Gibney exposes a system-wide collapse caused by a profound dereliction of Presidential leadership. It will be a generation before we know the full extent of the damage wrought by this pandemic, but Totally Under Control will stand as the definitive account of the Trump administration’s incompetence, corruption and denial in the face of this global pandemic.

    This movie is pro science & pro alerting the public of America’s failure to contain this virus.

    Cases and deaths are still ongoing and so is the poor leadership.

  • Voters, not Trump

    By sunjw360
    You have to understand one thing: It’s not Trump that causes the failure. It is the American system and people that caused it. Still a lot of voter support Trump after all this can you believe it? Nothing you can do with voters like these. That’s the price you have to pay for democracy.
  • More Leftist Spin

    By FinGriffey
    Incredibly biased and disingenuous. I’m perpetually amazed how individuals can create such falsehoods instead of being objective and seeking truth. It’s really indicative of deeper psychological unbalance and pathological lying. I live in NY so I’ve seen how Andrew Cuomo handled this horrendously — over 33,000 deaths and counting — which is DOUBLE the next closest state of California yet with only half the population! Of course, this has been given a permanent pass in the media. Thoroughly despicable and not worth paying for. If I could get a refund I would. This is documentary is shameful, it is not in search of truths, only in search for spins.
