Four Hours at the Capitol (2021)



Critic Consensus: While Four Hours at the Capitol may not provide the most cogent thesis on the January 6 attack, it provides a thorough and visceral record of that infamous day's events.

Movie Info

Documentary filmmaker Jamie Roberts sheds new light on the political unrest fomented by extreme far right ideologies that spurred thousands of citizens from across the United States to descend upon Washington D.C. and invade the White House. Protesting the selection of Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States, the insurrectionists stormed the American Capitol building, putting countless politicians in harm's way in their violent and misguided attempt to thwart the certification of Biden's office.

The underlying collective testimony furnished by Four Hours at the Capitol is that the age of Trump has not yet ended - and the true day of reckoning in the United States is still to come.

A powerful documentary that takes no sides...

October 22, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Four Hours lets its subjects speak without interjection or correction, a decision that seems to respect its audience's ability to reason out the logical gaps.

October 22, 2021 | Full Review…

A documentary that doesn't have the stomach to tell the story of what happened on Jan. 6 explicitly, and to express the real threat to American democracy that that day represents, is of no use to anybody.

October 21, 2021 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

One can hardly refer to a collection of such potent footage as uninteresting, but its assembly here leaves much to be desired.
