This is overall a good documentary, but although a fan of Mr. Frank, I differ from his viewpoint that it is really about a bunch of grassroots/converative types, ignoring the financing and funding behind the scenes [Kansas = Koch country, et cetera]. Mr. Frank appears to still be under the belief that politics is the highest tier of control, not simply the courtier class owned and managed by the super-rich!
This doc reminded me of an interview on NPR running up to the 2000 election, when a Kansan, sounding like the most radical type conceivable, ended his short sound byte with, // . . . and that's why I'll be voting for John McCain!\\ Could have sworn he sounded like a Nader vote - - really out of the Twilight Zone!

I found nothing interesting or really redeeming about this film. Yes, there are people in Kansas who care deeply about religious and social issues. But this film does not really explore the broader cultural, rational, or historical significance of these views.
