It was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. The film is narrated by Josh Brolin.
French journalist Marjolaine Gout gave the film 4 stars out of 5. She wrote about it as a “stunning” documentary exposing the social practice in the United States using history and media to federate a nation. She explains that the movie shows the manipulation of the mass with a constant staging of their life. She talks also about the concept of heroism present in this film. She makes a link between Daniel Boone and Patrick Tillman in the use of their identity as legend and symbol.
