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.

    Boring, recycling of left/liberal agenda against the president. Don’t waste your $, just watch msm.
  • South Korea only has federal level government

    By CharlesWK
    Comparing how the United States, with 50 States and Governors has handled COVID-19 to how South Korea, who only has federal level government, is like comparing apples and oranges.
  • Propaganda

    Made by the deep state. The virus isn’t a pandemic by definition.
  • Exposes Failures.

    This film exposes the failures with the Trump administrations handling of this pandemic. Horrific loss of life, all due to a complete disregard for the health and safety of the American people. It continues to be mishandled and this will not change under this current administration.

    We needed a president who cared about America. Instead, we got Trump and over 200,000 dead.

  • Hate doesn’t look good on you!!

    By donley48
    Take the polar opposites out of the equation, the red or blue, left or right, and you’ll find that YOUR current president is the best president that anybody alive on this earth has ever had the privilege of experiencing. Let’s stop the you like it so I have to hate it mentality. How can you ever win if you’re constantly fighting yourself??

    American death toll counts co-morbidity. Statistics are twisted to governments benefit.
