A doc as messy as the movement it tries to portray, 99%: The Occupy Wall Street Collaborative Film possesses energy, passion and about a dozen docs inside it yearning to breathe free.

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.

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 farther the film gets from Wall Street, the richer and bolder a manifesto it becomes.

It's not definitive, tidy or entirely cohesive, but hey, neither was the movement.
