Explosive, revealing and very thought-provoking!
14 August 2018 | by sabinal-52160See all my reviews

This documentary is as real as it gets. It talks about modern western society's, together with the rest of the world catching up, obsession with wealth, status and fame. Its brutal honesty is sad and scary, as we get to meet people who in their quest for wealth have sacrificed way more than they could handle. Living in Miami you get to see this exact obsession to the point of ridiculous a lot. People from all walks of life are willing to do anything, everything, whatever it takes, to get there , to be there, to make it ..no matter the price. It's a modern day race and mantra. Appreciating and enjoying finer things in life, as well as the beauty of luxury is understandable, aspiring to do better for yourself is fine, but going into unimaginable extremes can sometimes have dangerous consequences. I would like to add something which, perhaps, has not been stressed enough in the movie - everything in life is a personal choice , it's ok to be rich and "wealth" does not necessarily has to have a negative connotation. I agree with the opinion voiced in the documentary that a lot of it has to do with media celebrity cult and the capitalist system itself. A lot of people (not only teenagers) are not aware of how powerful mass media marketing is nowadays. Not everyone has the same standards and aspirations in life ,yet, this documentary has voiced some thoughts and emotions a lot of us were having for quite a while now but were too scared to admit.
