In Creative Review, Rob Turner (Lecturer in 20th and 21st-Century Literature at the University of Exeter) examines the many political and cultural layers that lie within the video. ‘As a short film, This Is America is sharp as hell, and it holds its own alongside a spate of violent fantasies imagining life after Obama.’
