Moving, intelligent, informative, inspiring and more than a little sad., 7 August 2014
Author: runamokprods from US

This is chronicle of the first year of the 'Occupy" movement, its successes, and failures, its growth into something that seemed to promise the hope of real change, and then its beginning to fade back into the background noise of society.

Like the movement itself, it's sprawling and messy, goes off on tangents, is directed by many people, and yet - also like the movement - captures something essential and important about democracy and freedom in a nation increasingly dominated by those with the money.

It's naive to think that money and property haven't long been a source of much power, even modern democracies, but the film illustrates how important it is not to just give in to the lobbyists, billionaire donors and corporations (now defined as people), even while seeming to acknowledge how nearly impossible uprooting that ever more entrenched system may be.

It's brave enough to make you want to take a stand, and honest enough to painfully acknowledge there are limits of change that will be hard to exceed.

Kudos to the film-makers for allowing critical voices to intelligently question whether the movement's 'there are no leaders' collective approach can ever really be organized enough to force change. It's a valid question, and one that has to be a part of the future of trying to restore balance in the U.S.
