Quotes

Narrator: Starting with Ronald Reagan, the Holy Grail of "de-regulation" has been sold to the public; and the news media has largely ignored its disastrous results.
Mark Lloyd: Once the Reagan administration was done, there were more rules. But they called it "de-regulation." It's, err, almost an Orwellian use of language: You create new rules, but the rules change, they benefit industry now, and you call it "de-regulation," because people *like* de-regulation, like fewer rules.

I was blown away by this movie!
9 July 2004 | by (Garrison, NY) – See all my reviews

I was blown away by this movie. In it's own way it is better than Farenhite 9/11. It is less polished, but very effective. One has to be very worried about "our democracy". You have the feeling you want to do something after seeing this film - but what?

What else can I say - as they want 10 lines - I was deeply disturbed as was most of the group I saw the movie with. Everyone asked what they could do? Some had no idea what was going on re: the various news items discussed in the film. I am curious as to what other people will think when the movie officially opens in a few weeks. Hope others will comment on it when they see the movie.
