KNOCK DOWN THE HOUSE
May 1, 2019  | By David Bianculli

Netflix, 3:00 a.m. ET

 

DOCUMENTARY PREMIERE: The House in this title is the House of Representatives, and the Knock Down is the attempts by a handful of female candidates to challenge and/or unseat more establishment male politicians in the 2018 midterm elections. Not all of the attempts filmed for this documentary succeeded – in fact, most of them fall short – but one candidate who emerged triumphantly is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, now a Democratic representative from New York, and quickly becoming a recognized and influential national figure. Knock Down the House shows how, and even why, that happened in her case, and not in others.
