Tia Lessin and Carl Deal have made a decent, but not exceptional, movie of the “blood boiler” genre — documentaries calculated to rile you up. After dallying with the Supreme Court and its peccadilloes and the impact of a single change on that bench (Samuel Alito in for Sandra Day O’Connor) on the Citizens United ruling, the filmmakers set up shop in Wisconsin,  amid the political bloodbath that pitted Republican Gov. Scott Walker against labor unions. This movie shouldn’t have been called Citizen Koch — the title leads you to expect a level of insight into the Koch brothers that it doesn’t begin to deliver. But it will still make your blood boil. The screening at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 19, is a fundraiser for KSFR-FM hosted by Craig Barnes. Not rated. 90 minutes. Center for Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe. See review.
