Critic Reviews for Labor Day
Director Glenn Silber's look at how window washers, public employees, janitors and other working men and women played a role in 2008's political events is heartening, and yet, a year after being filmed, unintentionally aggravating.
Rather than capturing the profound excitement so many people felt during the 2008 campaign, it just seems to be patting itself on the back.
The film never finds drama, focus or any greater purpose other than some dubious horn-blowing about the SEIU being singularly responsible for electing President Obama.
I'd call Glenn Silber's Labor Day a well-intentioned but dull, video-ugly documentary if it weren't partly financed by its subject, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU); that just makes it a crappy infomercial.
There's only so much rah-rah-sis-boom-ba you can take about a President elected on the premise of ending the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, who has merely followed in his predecessor's footsteps of starving the U.S. into dirt.
