The latest advocacy documentary that will either induce you into changing your ways or simply have you curling into a fetal position from despair.
Offering few solutions beyond a single fair-trade fashion company, "The True Cost" - whose serene interludes compete with sickening recordings of Black Friday shopping riots and so-called clothing haul videos - stirs and saddens.
One would almost be inclined to give Morgan a pass for interviewing some of his executive producers as expert sources.
Even if, like me, you agree with the points that it's fumbling toward, The True Cost will likely read as dopey and insulting ...
A few bumper-sticker sentiments can't detract from this compelling film, which is, above all else, a badly needed conversation-starter.
The ugliness beneath the glamour is exposed by this vitally important documentary, which addresses the immense, ongoing problems in the fashion industry.
Heavy on talking heads and Morgan's stilted narration, The True Cost is methodical to a fault, plodding purposefully from one damning insight to the next.
By piling horror upon horror, The True Cost also risks diminishing the impact of individual incidents, and overall it doesn't punch as hard as it should.
