Wow. It does it.
14 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw the 99% film tonight at Humans Right festival in NYC. This film does the impossible - it historically places the Occupy movement accurately and in a really intelligent and well-edited narrative that shows what help spur the movement. It also critiques the movement and analyzes what is next for the U.S.

Me and my wife thoroughly enjoyed it and I recommend this film to any American or global citizen who is concerned with the way the world is moving, both economically and environmentally.

It is a true act of devotion and a labor of love that these filmmakers were able to take literally probably thousands of hours of footage and make an effective and cohesive narrative.

There were many times in the film I was cheering for humanity.

I hope more people see this film.
