Bernie Sanders inspired a generation - but who inspired him? This is the passionate, thoughtful biography of the founder of the American Socialist Party, five-time presidential candidate and the only presidential candidate in US history to be imprisoned for his campaign platform. The values with which lived his life and fought for social and economic justice remain in short supply today.

I watched this movie with my wife and we both were amazed by it. It's not a documentary, it's a life of Debs. It's very interesting and very moving. I was very impressed with the way the film was edited. It's not a documentary and it's not a movie. It's a life of a man who stood for what he believed in and fought for what he believed in. The film is very informative and I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in the life of Eugene Victor Debs.

This is an excellent documentary about one of the most influential political figures of the 20th century. It is well-made and the subject matter is not controversial, even though it is a very well-known story. I think that the film is a bit over-dramatic, but it is certainly a very important story. The film is a bit over-dramatic in the first half, but I think that it is more realistic than most documentaries. I think that it is a good film for anyone who is interested in the history of the American working class, and for anyone who is interested in politics. I think that the film is worth watching. I would recommend it to anyone.

This film is a must see for anyone who believes that the current political system in the United States is broken and needs to be replaced. I believe that this film will encourage people to see that it is not only possible to change the system but that it is actually possible to do it without resorting to violence. This film will also inspire people to continue to organize, to get involved in politics, to stand up for what is right and to never give up. This film is a must see for anyone who believes that the current political system in the United States is broken and needs to be replaced.

This film is a must see for anyone interested in the history of the labor movement. It is an extremely well done documentary, with interviews with all the major players in the movement, and a lot of historical information that is presented in a way that makes it easy to follow. The documentary covers the history of the movement from the early days of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) in the early 1900s, through the mid-20th century, to the present day. The film covers a lot of the same ground as the book, which is a very interesting read. The movie also covers some of the other major labor organizations in the US, and it does a very good job of explaining their history. The movie also includes interviews with the most important labor leaders of the time, and it does a very good job of showing the differences between the IWW and the AFL-CIO. This documentary is very well done, and I highly recommend it.

I have been a big fan of Eugene Debs for many years, but I am not a fan of the Socialist Party. I am a big fan of the American Socialist Party, which is why I was excited to see this documentary. It is a great movie that gives a great overview of the history of the Socialist Party, and the work that was done by Eugene Debs. I think that the movie is well worth seeing. It is a must see for any American.

I saw this film last night. I am not sure why I was so intrigued by it, but it did have me at the edge of my seat. This documentary was a long, but well-told story. The film was well-directed, well-written, and well-acted. I would recommend this film to anyone who wants to know more about Eugene Victor Debs and his revolutionary ideas. The film is definitely not for everyone. I found it quite interesting, but I don't think it was a film for everyone. I think people who are interested in politics and are into the history of the American Civil Rights Movement will find this documentary to be fascinating. This film is definitely worth seeing.

I was fortunate enough to see this documentary at the Sundance Film Festival. The movie itself is a well-done, well-told story of Debs' life and his struggle for civil rights. It is a well-told story that is full of humor and insight. I was especially impressed with the way the story was told and how it was presented. I found myself thinking about the movie for a while after I left the theater. I will definitely be buying this film when it is released on DVD. The documentary is worth seeing.

I'm not sure if I'm an American socialist, but I do think this film is very well done. It covers a lot of the issues that the Socialist party and Debs dealt with. There are a lot of great quotes from Debs, and a lot of good information on the history of the Socialist party. It's definitely a documentary, and if you're looking for a movie to watch, I think this is a good one.

I'm sure there's a lot of people out there who will agree with me. This is a great documentary. The story of Eugene Victor Debs is fascinating. It's a little hard to follow at times, but it's not a bad documentary at all. I was very impressed with the people who were interviewed, and I think it was a great way to introduce people to the political activist who was a great leader in the Socialist party. I was also impressed with the documentary itself, it's very well done. It was interesting to see the history of the documentary, and how it was put together. The editing was very good, and the documentary itself was very well done. It's a great documentary, and I would recommend it to anyone.

I found this movie very interesting. The only thing that I did not like was the introduction of the subject matter. It was too heavy for me. I feel like they could have done more to explain the background to the history of the Democratic Party. The movie does not explain how the party started, and it does not explain why the party is the way it is today. I feel like the movie could have done a better job explaining the history of the Democratic Party. Overall, I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to know more about the Democratic Party. I would give this movie a 9/10.

This is a documentary on the life and times of Eugene Victor Debs, a socialist who was a socialist and a communist. The film starts off with a short introduction to the man and then goes into his life and times. It is narrated by Bruce Springsteen. The film covers his life from his early years as a boy to his death as a young man. He is interviewed by a number of people including his brother, his mother, his wife and his political allies. There is also footage from his speeches and interviews with his supporters. The film does a good job of showing his views on politics and socialism and also his views on capitalism and the American Dream. There are some very good and interesting moments throughout the film. The film also does a good job of showing the struggle Eugene was going through to get his message out to the American people. The film is very interesting and I found it very interesting and entertaining.
