On the heels of Ben Howe’s inspiring Palin Epiphany, Erik Erickson of Red State is impressed with the strong opening of The Undefeated:
In fact, the Palin film is dazzling people by just how well a film of its type is doing with no traditional promotion. Even movies like The Passion of the Christ, which largely relied on alternative publicity mechanisms, still had a great deal of traditional promotion, studio support, and media buzz.
“The Undefeated” is different. In addition to being a political documentary, it is not backed by a studio, does not have major media buzz, and continues to sell out in showings around the country.
More impressive, there are continued reports of people who didn’t care for Palin or had no opinion of her (the few that remain) who came out impressed with her in the movie.
The movie is going to be expanding its presence around the country. It’ll be interesting to see just how much of a demand it can keep.
