    Just wow, the push the powers are giving this women should be setting off alarms.

    WASHINGTON – Netflix shelled out an eye-popping $10 million for rights to a documentary about young upstarts running for Congress starring Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.


    Deadline first reported the amount the streaming giant paid for “Knock Down the House,” a film that followed four women vying for office during the 2018 election cycle.


    The website said it was the largest sum ever brokered at a film festival for a documentary.


    Of the four contenders, only Ocasio-Cortez won.


    The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival late last month.


    Ocasio-Cortez was headed to the premiere, but pulled out a day before her planned appearance, citing “complications from the government shutdown.” The shutdown had ended the day before.


    She instead appeared via video at the screening.


    Since then “Knock Down the House” has won Sundance’s Festival Favorite Award.

    What alarms? This is capitalism, Netflix is banking that the documentary will net them profits. Documentaries have been steadily increasing in value, and this one has apparently won at least one award.

    Also, the ten million was what Netflix plaid for rights to the film, not what's going to AOC.

    Doesn't mean she gets much or any of that - unless she produced or owns the right to the documentary, she is not getting 10 million and in all likelihood, anywhere near that


    Now will she parlay the exposure to further her career either in politics or as a brand, if she has any intelligence she will. Capitalism will be her friend in that regard

    What powers is she getting from this besides possible popularity? You are hysterical about a documentary being put on Netflix. Let that sink in for a minute. Funny how much she rustles people considering how dumb most of you seem to think she is.

    Who are "they"?

    The powers that be, ie. the establishment are all working against her. Both the DNC and the GOP.

    God, the right wingers' wires keep getting crossed on what dumbshit message to pursue re AOC. Is she being sabotaged by the establishment Democrats who want her out? Is she being pushed on us by the powers that be? Is she an uneducated nitwit moocher? Is she a privileged Machiavellian con artist? Or could she possibly be a politically skilled and well-educated young woman who happened to upset a House incumbent?

    The answer: whichever narrative can substantiate or supplement the daily choice of moronic alarmism and pseudo scandal.

    Netflix is? AOC seems to be getting just as much bad press as good. Ideas can be debated in the public sphere, I'm not going to be fearful of any person or idea being given a platform. We have freedom of speech, and so does the maker of this documentary.

    LOL

    This thread is absurd.

    "Guys! Netflix have bought the rights to a documentary!... A DOCUMENTARY! And it cost money! It's OUTRAGEOUS!"

    Get a fucking grip.

    You clearly have NO IDEA how this shit works, because it's highly unlikely AOC is seeing a cent of that money. She's in the documentary, but I don't think she has any actual stake in it and so won't see any of the profits. The subject of a documentary and the producer of a documentary are two very different things.

    Netflix just saw a documentary, that someone else made, and they think it's going to be popular, so they snagged the rights.

    It's insane that you've read that and taken it to mean that AOC is now a millionaire, which somehow violates her socialist ideals.

    Absurd.

    I don't care if she gets any money out of the deal, I just think it's funny that someone who has accomplished so little has a documentary lined up.

    I don't think she gets a cut from any proceeds/deals etc, not because she's not entitled to it, but because she said she doesn't want any money from it.

    This is from what I recall reading somewhere though, so I could be wrong. If I find anything I'll post it.
