First-class muckraking from a first-class muckraker
26 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just watched it. Didn't read the description very accurately -- frankly I was expecting something a bit more along the lines of "Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous, PBS-style." Boy, was I (pleasantly) surprised!

Gibney turns his well-focused populist lens on a rogues' gallery of plutocratic bandits who deserve the scrutiny: the recipients of corporate welfare, lax regulations, and obscene tax breaks, such as the Koch Brothers and Steve Schwarzman. (Big surprise: one of the Kochs is a lousy tipper, on top of everything else!)

An excellent, hard-hitting, fast-paced docu that deserves a wide audience. Highly recommended!
