Read Time:19 Second

Multi-hyphenate Armando Iannucci might be the best working satirist today (all seven seasons of Veep are streaming on HBO Max and DirecTV).

The Weather Underground is a documentary about the radical group of that name, and the times that gave rise to it. In addition to archival footage, it includes retrospective interviews with multiple Weather Underground members themselves and other figures from that era. It’s quite well-done and thought-provoking.
