Eugene Jarecki, documentary-maker extraordinaire, has directed "Reagan", a highly-recommended analysis of the life of the president that Republicans would like to name everything after, including things that Reagan contributed to gut or destroy. The documentary adds is a much needed reality-check against the Reagan mythology that has grown since he left the White House.
"Reagan" premiered last night on HBO. You can catch it next tomorrow, at 4 and 7 p.m. EST on HBO2 East and West respectively.
In the meantime, you can watch Laura Flanders interview Eugene Jarecki on GritTV.
