Netflix Documentary 'Oklahoma City' Is A "Warning For Trump's America"

Share

With a renowned set of binge-worthy whoppers under their belt, Netflix has become one of the best curators of original content so far. The company has proven itself more than competent when it comes to unveiling the gritty details in their documentaries and it seems that their new film Oklahoma City is a testament to that. 

Here’s a little backstory: In the year 1995, on April 19, a truck bomb exploded near a US Federal government building in Oklahoma city. The blast wiped out one-third of the structure, killing 168 people and injuring more than 680 others. The explosion also destroyed 324 other buildings within range and burned more than 80 cars in its path.

The crime, which was later dubbed ‘the deadliest domestic terrorism incident in United States history’, was committed by a young man named Terry Nichols and a former US soldier known as Timothy McVeigh – both of whom were heavily influenced by radical far-right literature and white supremacist culture.

Delving deep into the stories of those affected, the documentary also explores the psychological motivations that led Timothy McVeigh to commit the horrific act.

Indiewire called the film “a terrifying warning for Trump’s America” and went on to emphasise the documentary’s relevance in light of the “increasing prominence of white supremacists in the US”.

With Emmy-award winning director, Barak Goodman, at it’s helm, ‘Oklahoma City’ is shaping up to be a terrifying but necessary investigation into radicalism and the far-right.

The film is now available to watch on Netflix and comes highly praised by both Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic.
