Powerful documentary details Argentina's shame.

Full Review… | May 16, 2005

Solanas' head of steam tends to detract from the message and makes one appreciate just how good Michael Moore is at what he does.

Audience Reviews for Social Genocide (Memoria del saqueo)

Good documentary. I'm very sure that, as Mexico and Venezuela, Argentina is beyond repair due to its deep seeded and overtly flagrant corruption.
The odd thing about it was that it end with a very happy-peppy ambiance just like when Argentinians celebrated the election of those government officials who fucked them up the rear end.
Also, it looked like a Kirchneresque production, but hey, every country has the government it deserves if they cheer victory from winning just a battle.
The only beef I have with this production is the TERRIBLE camera work and editing... seems to me they wanted to make their own version of what a Dutch Angle stands for, but the only thing it caused was a huge headache, I was so dizzy throughout the doc, with all that distortion and terrible excessive use of the wide angle lens use even during interviews where the subject were a mere one shot c/u.
