For tips on the dark arts of empire-building, would-be tycoons should study this doc, in which Donald Trump has the brass to try to build ‘the world’s best golf course’ on one of Scotland’s most protected sites. In 2007 Aberdeenshire Council rejected Trump’s plans for the dune-covered stretch of coastline in Menie. The Trump PR machine swung into action and a year later, the starstruck SNP government gave the go-ahead. So we watch as bulldozers move in. ‘We’ve saved the dunes,’ declares Trump. (From what: Unspoilt natural beauty?) The candyfloss-combover king criticises neighbouring properties which face compulsory purchase. He fears that tractors will ruin his punters’ luxury holidays: ‘For people to have to look at this virtual slum is a disgrace,’ he says of one farm. For this alone, the SNP should surely quit the bowing and scraping and bar him from the country.

Superb depiction of how money can buy prinicples (and Alex Salmond), and a clear insight into Trump's gradual transformation into a barking mad Howard Hughes-like figure with a God complex. Favourite scene - where he offers a Glaswegian girl a job because he thinks she's pretty. Cringe-inducing (and his son appears to have modelled himself after Patrick Bateman). For risking life and limb in the face of Trump-inspired police thuggery, the filmmakers certainly deserve 5-stars. The only downside is - no resolution (the story isn't over yet...)
