"A great, thought-provoking experience...VISCERALLY SHOCKING...Something that is inherently fragmented - i.e. several dozen reams of haphazard personal footage - can trascend its origins when put together, and watched together...NO ONE PERSPECTIVE COULD EVER BE AS COMPLEX AND THOUGHT-PROVOKING AS ALL THESE MANY VIEWS AND VOICES."

11/4/08 - Where were YOU?! by Becky via WTF Is Up With My Love Life?!

“The fun thing about 11/4/08 is that it’s like a Rorschach test. I’ve seen the documentary twice now, months apart, and it seemed quite different on a second viewing. Years from now it’ll be something else, and years after that, too.”

11/4/08 Review by Caveman Dave via A Blog 4 Guys

“In the same way that Obama’s election signaled a major change, perhaps the way this film was and still is being made indicates AN EQUALLY MONUMENTAL REVOLUTION IN THE WAY FILMS CAN BE CREATED.”

“UNIQUE & INTRIGUING. It was a sensational occurrence, and to not document it would almost seem irresponsible.”

Review: 11/4/08 by Kate Kotler via Filmcatcher

“INTRIGUING & OCCASIONALLY CHILLING. Unlike HBO’s somewhat stagnant documentary, By the People: The Election of Barack Obama, Deutchman’s film is actually for, about and made by the very people who brought the unlikely candidate to the White House.”

“EXCITING & HEARTBREAKING. Since much of the hype and momentum of the Obama campaign was generated online, what better place to log its history than the internet? BEST VIEWED ONLINE.”
