There's No Place Like Utopia portrays the reality of America, in stark contrast to the Utopian fantasy of the Progressives and their myopic supporters. This film demonstrates that the Progressive fantasy is creating nothing but disillusionment, leading our great county down a self-destructive path. Film maker Joel Gilbert rightly depicts America at a crossroads between reality and fantasy. Highly recommended!
Joel Gilbert dissects what many Americans think of as a benign desire for a perfectible universe, and in doing so exposes the dark totalitarian underside of utopian dreams. With insightful interviews overlaying a comic narrative, Gilbert brings to life our current day Wizards of Oz and their outsized plans to reorganize society and control behavior, while shrinking the freedoms we still - foolishly - take for granted. Americans need to wake up before they find themselves living in a very different country from the one they were born to.
You gotta remember Peggy Joseph! She's the Florida woman who said after an Obama speech in 2008: "I won't have to worry about puttin' gas in my car, I won't have to worry about payin' my mortgage."

Cross-country odyssey explores progressive quest for utopia.
There's No Place Like Utopia will be a sobering discovery for America. Instead of the usual image of a prosperous and carefree country, it depicts a dying, deteriorating America, sick mentally and physically. The film maker, Joel Gilbert, demonstrates great civil courage in unmasking the new leftist masters of America, whom it it is dangerous to expose, and about whom one can only speak good or nothing at all...
A great message to America accomplished with remarkable wisdom, dogged determination and exceptional patriotism. This film can turn the tide of progressive destruction. This movie needs to be seen by every American.
'The enthusiasm was incredible, a standing ovation at every screening'
Mr. Gilbert's new documentary, "There's No Place Like Utopia," is a fresh, fast-paced, insightful look at the folly that is socialism.
'Everything had changed for the worse ... no one was progressing'
Last night saw the premier in Denver of Joel Gilbert's There's No Place Like Utopia, a film that gets to the heart of the progressive/communist project for America and where it is leading us.
Peggy Joseph embraced President Barack Obama's "hope and change" mantra during the 2008 election, her comments to a reporter about how the then-candidate would "pay for my gas and my mortgage" resonating among voters caught up in his star power.

America, we have a problem. America has been under siege from a vast left-wing conspiracy.
Joel Gilbert has found a nearly perfect (and fun) metaphor for understanding the lure of socialism: the Jungian hero trip as distilled in the American consciousness through the ever popular Wizard of Oz. Leaving home, the individual is seduced by the utopian promises offered...
The filmmaker who exposed Barack Obama's Marxist background, and debt to a pro-Soviet Communist Party operative, is trying once again to wake up America.
I cant think of a higher honor to recognize your body of work in the movie 'Utopia' than to say it needs to belong to the ages. All high school economics & sociology classes should review this film. What imagination, what facts, what humor, what a 'happy warrior', what quality music, what good pacing & timing, what validation of the truth that is stated by the victims of their own demise both wittingly & unwittingly... a masterpiece.
Joel Gilbert takes a serious theme--how socialism (disguised as progressivism) threatens to destroy our freedom and prosperity and fashions it into an imaginative, creative, biting and yes, genuinely funny movie. There's No Place Like Utopia manages to be both instructive and entertaining. It should be to the current elections what Dinesh di Souza's documentary 2016 was to the 2012 elections, only this time, given the very different atmosphere, Gilbert's film could have a real political impact.

Joel Gilbert has found a nearly perfect (and fun) metaphor for understanding the lure of socialism: the Jungian hero trip as distilled in the American consciousness through the ever popular Wizard of Oz. Leaving home, the individual is seduced by the utopian promises offered by Oz only to discover that the Wizard is a charlatan and his promises are empty. The challenge for those seduced is to find their way home to the metaphorical Kansas, the place where faith, family, hard work, and self-fulfillment are still the norm. Our cities, as Gilbert shows all too clearly, are filled with people who learned too late that they had been had and no longer have a home to return to.
There's No Place Like Utopia will be a sobering discovery for America. Instead of the usual image of a prosperous and carefree country, it depicts a dying, deteriorating America, sick mentally and physically. The film maker, Joel Gilbert, demonstrates great civil courage in unmasking the new leftist masters of America, whom it it is dangerous to expose, and about whom one can only speak either good or nothing at all.
Gilbert also manages to explain to Americans many complicated things and ideas in a playful, funny and picturesque form. Even the unpleasant does not produce a feeling of revulsion, but rather causes a range of feelings. For example, Gilbert ventures deep into the ruins of Detroit, the former glory of America, where we see abandoned churches, something that we used to see only in the Soviet Union. The saddest thing revealed is the destruction of American political life, at the hands of the Americans themselves, most of whom simply don't know about our awful Soviet experience with socialist utopia, or as we called it, "hell on earth".
