Wow! What a great compelling movie.
29 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

This movie brings the issues to the audience in a succinct manner. You wouldn't think that a movie about finances would have a compelling story but it sure does. It keeps you interested and by the end I feel fired up over the issues. One of those movies you wish all the politicians could watch. The music and graphics help to move the movie along and the graphics help to keep the story organized and flowing. Definitely recommend this movie to any and all. Also showed this movie to a friend of mine and he felt the same that the movie was really high quality and helped him to think about his political views. One of the other points of this movie that I liked was that it was not focusing on bashing a political view, but was showing how politicians on both sides have given into the big company pressures. (could say more on that, but will leave it to you to enjoy)
