Amazing
10 April 2006 | by skittlesjunkie14See all my reviews

This movie is a must see to every American who is fed up with or questions the government. This documentary is engaging and presents a mystery from the beginning. Why do we pay income tax? Who really controls this government? Go on an investigation with Aaron Russo and the people he's interviewed. Prepare to be intrigued and entertained and to leave the movie with answers! It is set to be released in July, but if there is a pre-screening near you, go! He gives both sides of the issues and presents a fair but skeptical view of what is happening in this country. Unlike Fahrenheit 911, this movie does not shove anything down the audience's throats. It presents questions, answers some, and leaves room for your own investigations. This movie is truly spectacular and worth the travel to see it: I flew from Milwaukee, WI to San Francisco just to see it!
