"Death of a Nation" is an anti-intellectual flurry of tangential arguments, big-time assertions, and pathetic pandering. Rather than denounce the violence that is tearing America apart, something that clearly upsets Dinesh D'Souza, he conducts mental gymnastics to once again fault Democrats. Bring forth added pain from excruciatingly wooden dramatized scenes and you have an unmitigated disaster of a documentary.
I'll give Dinesh this: he keeps bullshit coming fast. Its argument is a string of crappy syllogisms that only make sense if you believe ideology exists on one axis and terminology never changes over time. In the even-worse historical scenes, actors make portentous eye contact with the camera, as if you're dumping on Lincoln if you don't vote Trump—who, admittedly, does sound better with an inspirational soundtrack.
