In You've Been Trumped (Best Feature, SFGFF 2012), Anthony Baxter explored the deceit and intimidation Donald Trump employed to get a luxury golf resort built in an ecological reserve along the coast of Scotland. Now, he’s back with a sequel, You've Been Trumped Too, which he made in a desperate attempt to convince Trump supporters that their candidate was nothing but a bully and a liar. Ultimately, as we know too well, that quest failed, but it is illuminating to watch Michael Forbes, the defiant hero of the first film, attempt to reason with Trump supporters that his direct experience with the candidate and his minions does not augur well, to put it mildly, for the U.S. if he were to become President. - Mark Valentine
