We Pedal Uphill

Written & Directed by: Roland Tec
Full credits from IMDb

We Pedal Uphill collects 13 vignettes—one for each red and white stripe—about life in these Disunited States, from 2001–2008. Each story, set in a different state, from Massachusetts to Oklahoma, is a Bush-era tale of fear, racism, homophobia, corruption and treason. Conspicuously, it’s a low-budget labor of outrage, so we can forgive the theatrical acting styles, even the earnestness of its lefty politics. But it’s harder to forgive the film’s timing; it has arrived too late.
