“Split: A Deeper Divide” is a new doc that attempts to take us deep into the cultural divide that exists today and explain where it came from. It’s not necessarily director Kelly Nyks’ fault that, while he attempts to plunge into this crevice like a moonshine-poisoned, wetsuit-clad James Cameron, he’s really just examining fault lines through binoculars. It’s an audaciously broad topic, and at less than eighty minutes, you wonder what exactly “Split” gives us that we haven’t received from countless other political documentaries.
