Pay2Play - Impactful, important, and inspirational.
19 September 2014 | by pam-111-844337See all my reviews

Pay2Play is an impactful and energetic look at the influence of money in politics. Interviews with people "in the know" of politics (but not corrupted by being "in the system") such as Lawrence Lessig, Marianne Williamson, Thom Hartmann, Robert Reich, Noam Chomsky (& more) give insight into exactly how our current political system is an intentional insider game. When only candidates with big bank accounts (or big dollar backers) get into office and forward their own agendas, the results on the everyday American are nothing short of devastating. Pay2Play however is not a downer documentary; Ennis also provides us with examples of where people power has made a difference, and outlines viable steps and means where we can still turn it all around.
