The bulk of the material is confusing at best and laughable at worst.

This latest in a long line of Occupy Wall Street-minded documentaries suffers from its strident tone and scattershot approach.

Documentaries don't get more one-sided than "American Empire: An Act of Collective Madness," but what a persuasive side it is.

Clear and concise, with insightful, impassioned interviewees and well-chosen epithets from statesmen past and present, it cogently analyzes looming catastrophes, with wistful stabs at possible solutions.

When Woodrow Wilson is a villain in your movie, viewer beware!

A jumbled nonfiction jeremiad of raw-nerve feeling built around ominous and vague proclamations of 'where we're going' as a country, American Empire is like a vitamin B-boosted espresso shot for left-leaning paranoiacs.
