White Noise

White Noise ★★★½

Very good timing for this doc - white supremacy and the alt-right up close and personal. Fascinating for me as I don't actually know any alt-right fanatics personally and this film, made patiently over a number of years, provides candid exposure of three front-line personalities in the movement. That candid thing is what distinguishes White Noise for me, bringing "celebrity" icons down to human scale. The fact that the film's timeline pretty much coincides with the Trump years is fortuitous, almost in a rise-and-fall kind of symbiosis - particularly in terms of how the three subjects end up (jury's still out on Trump). Full marks to Lambroso for achieving such intimate access without any suggestion of editorial compromise.
