Intelligent and well-made, if as cold as the subjects
13 November 2013 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Well told and intelligent, the saga of the Rockefeller family is one of the great American stories. There was a lot of detail in this thorough documentary I had never known before. I was never bored despite the two parts running three and a half hours.

That said, it was somewhat lacking in emotion, as, apparently the Rockefellers were themselves at times. Unlike the story of the Kennedys or FDR, or others that American Experience have covered, it felt like a great history lesson, but not a powerful film.

That almost certainly is a comment on the subjects, not the film-making, and I'm glad they didn't try to force this cold, distant and strange bunch into artificially likability.
