Quotes

Donald Trump: See, I happen to be a very truthful person. His property is terribly maintained. It's slum-like. It's disgusting. He's got stuff thrown all over the place. He lives like a pig. And I did say that. And I'm an honest guy. And I speak honestly. And I think that's why some people like me and some people probably don't like me. But I think he'd do himself a great service if he fixed up his property. And I'm not talking money. It's not a question of money. It's a question of a little manual labour.

This is a must see!
10 December 2012 | by aba139See all my reviews

This film is a documentary about how predatory capitalism stile, with the help of the government, effects people, environment and science.

The best thing you can do to the wonderful profession of film making is: watch this film and give human decency, integrity, bravery, skill and modesty a chance to catch you.

It's a great film. Every minute watching worth while. But don't keep the experience and your thoughts about it to yourself.

We need to stop to give our attention and listening to people like Trump and this film made me realize that it is very important to shift what we have: attention, time, money and action to what we want more of.
