Last night, I got around to watching the movie Imperium with Daniel Radcliffe. Firstly, if you haven't experienced Dan's acting outside of Harry Potter, you must. He is a brilliant and versatile actor, and I'm really getting to enjoy his work. This movie was a great role for him, and I think he pulled it off really well.

As to the movie, it was unfortunately rather timely. It is about an FBI agent played by Radcliffe who goes undercover into groups of white supremacists in effort to gain intel and to subvert terror attacks. As he's studying the literature and learning about how he will fit in, he discovers the nature of what it means to be a white supremacist and from where it comes.

One of the points the FBI in the movie made was a reflection of how many domestic terror attacks were racially motivated and the seemingly endless list of white male perpetrators, and how it is that finding the Islamic terrorists seems to be viewed by the administration as the golden ticket, but that it is the white supremacists that make for a more viable and sustained threat.

The movie paints a picture of both the radicalized white supremacists in particular along with the familial followers and the disenfranchised folks that find a focal point in the propaganda.

Really good movie. I'd definitely recommend even if it wasn't Dan.

And given the latest cabinet appointments, it is scary as shit out there.
