Though it largely sides with the protesters, the film does not find them faultless.
The movie very skillfully goes from the macro (coverage of the various demonstrations and encampments) to the micro (interviews with individuals who suffered in the mortgage crisis, searing examination of the behavior of the police).
The variety of physical perspectives lends a vivid you-are-there aspect to this record of the Zuccotti Park protest in New York in 2011, which spawned similar demonstrations ... around the world.
It's remarkably fragmented, tangential and all over the place, which may make it the ideal vehicle for portraying the OWS experience.
Compelling as a panorama with historical analysis at heart, rather than an intellectual deconstruction devoid of any visceral proof.
It's not definitive, tidy or entirely cohesive, but hey, neither was the movement.
If you grant the documentary its slanted perspective at the outset, it works well as its own state-of-the-union address.
...never speaking to the diversity and complexity of a social movement and only inadvertently to its often inherent disorganization.
