Storyline

'The Weight of Chains 2' is a documentary film largely dealing with the effects of the Washington Consensus economic doctrine on the newly established former Yugoslav republics, but also with neoliberalism as an economic concept. Through interviews with Noam Chomsky, Oliver Stone and many others, the author, Serbian-Canadian Boris Malagurski, attempts to analyze why so many people in the Balkans are disappointed with the systems imposed after the fall of socialism and how capitalism could be improved. Looking at the examples of Ecuador and Iceland, the film tries to uncover alternatives to the prevailing orthodoxies of Western economic dictates and help developing nations find their own way to shape their economies and their countries.

Impressive and extremely well done
16 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

Exceptionally well done film by a very passionate, truth searching, young movie maker Boris Malagurski has left all of us speechless. It displays what happened 'behind the scene' and how foreign intervention helped the start and escalation of the war.

The movie is based on plenty of evidence, historical film clips and interviews with experts in the field, but in a very fast paced and an entertaining manner with cynicism and black humor entrenched in the film, which makes many compare Boris's style with that of Michael Moore. It is important to note that Boris had a much harder job to spark interest of Western audience as the topic was not so attractive for most who already had their well set views and preferred not to be critically challenged.

It is remarkable that even though the movie was completed by a very small team and with limited funds, financed mainly from donations of people throughout the world who wanted others to see this yet untold story, it is extremely well done.
