Better then others of its kind
22 September 2004 | by (san diego, ca) – See all my reviews

This movie surpassed my expectations. More straight forward documentary style so it is not as "entertaining" as some others but for those interested in the collapse of our democracy in recent years this is a must see. More disturbing then Far. 9/11 or murdochs war on journalism. This movie contained more new stories then did either of the other movies. Makes you not want to even watch TV anymore. It is well worth the 30 bucks that I spent. Its one of those things where you know in a limited way the things that are going on but to see them presented all in one place at one time is thought provoking to say the least. It also really is a movie that the media would not want you to see as evidenced by the statistics presented in the movie. Buy it, watch it then give it to everyone you know.
