The documentary “#Unfit: The Psychology of Donald Trump” states its thesis, unambiguously, in its title: That the current occupant of the White House is not fit for office, because, as argued by the film’s subjects, his malignant narcissism and other disqualifying psychological disorders. The talking heads include, chiefly, psychologist John Gartner of A Duty to Warn and attorney George Conway of the Lincoln Project, two anti-Trump groups. (Conway recently announced that he was stepping back from the Lincoln Project.) Directed by filmmaker Dan Partland, “#Unfit” is lively and often as funny as it is frightening, as it attempts to do a few things: Explain to the viewer how we got here, why it’s a dangerous place to be and how we can extricate ourselves from this morass. That last part is also encapsulated in a single word: Vote. Unrated. Available on various streaming platforms. Contains some strong language. 84 minutes.
